Over the past many year, there has been significant change in the conviction in our denomination regarding the role of women in church leadership. With this in mind, Consistory is compelled to carefully re-examine our own position, and in doing so we are looking for direction from the congregation in discerning God’s preferred future for our church. In light of the recent restrictions on public gatherings, it may be a few months before we can conduct the presentations and have the other conversations necessary to discern our path forward. However, this survey will provide Consistory and the Search Team with a more accurate sense of the Congregation’s present position on this issue. This will prove helpful as it is anticipated that potential candidates will have questions in this regard. We will be able to provide greater details about additional steps in this process as we near the time when meeting restrictions will be lifted. Please answer the following questions.
