The Transition Team was commissioned on Sunday, June 18, 2006, by the Rev. Dr. Allen Abbott, Regional Executive Minister for the American Baptist Churches of Vermont & New Hampshire (pictured on left). This commissioning was symbolic of the unique relationship between the congregation and the region. Dr. Abbott helped the congregation adopt a different type of interim ministry, called the "transformational track." This allowed the congregation also to signify its desire to be in transition, addressing short-term and long-term planning in a manner that a traditional interim period (a matter of months) cannot. For the next three years, the congregation covenants with the region and the intentional interim minister to be in a period intentionally set aside to carry out something other than "business as usual." Your prayers are welcome during this time of transition.
The sermon "Seeding Faith" was given that day by the Rev. Hugenot. Please refer to the "sermons" link and read his thoughts on the transformational journey.
