Moving Forward

600335-383347-thumbnail.jpg 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.
