Design Team Listening Session
The Design Team wants to hear from you! Please join for one final listening session to be held January 17 @ 7:00 pm @ MI Area Ministry Center (event will also be livestreamed online). Bishop David Alan Bard will be present along with other members of the Design Team. We want to hear your hopes, dreams, visions, ideas, and concerns.
“We are in a non-stop loop of listening.” said Co-Chair Rev. Marsha Woolley, “We have taken the hopes, dreams, concerns and feedback the Michigan Area has shared with us and spent hundreds of hours pouring those ideas into proposals on how to create a new annual conference.”
She added, “In November, we will share those publicly and once those have been read and discerned, we will begin listening again for a reaction to our recommendations.”
Several proposals are posted to the http://design.michiganumc.org/ website for you to review prior to the session. Feedback can be received through the website and also during the listening session.
