The Mission Study Team had its first orientation meeting last week with the Interim Minister, Rev. Marie Branigan, who was hired by Session for the specific purpose of guiding the Mission Study Team. When completed, the Mission Study will be the roadmap for the congregation and the new pastor, outlining the goals and direction of FPC in Pitman going forward. The team will be working hard to obtain input from the congregation through various means to ensure that we all have a stake in the future of this church. We will be asking for your participation in the Mission Study and will keep you informed of our progress. Also, after reviewing the composition of the Mission Study Team, we will need a few more members at large to join the Team to reflect the diversity of the congregation. It will be a lot of work, but if you are asked, we hope that the Holy Spirit will move you join the team. Thank you from the Mission Study Team: Susan Burkart, Marilyn Scanlon, Nancy Stewart, Elaine Scheetz, and John Fitzpatrick.
