The God’s Plans and Strategies (GPS) expedition program helps focus our church plans for the future. GPS is a new strategic planning process. In February 2014, the Council appointed eight church members to take the lead in working through the steps needed to develop a new long-range vision for FUMC. The Church Council has covenanted to ensure that the resulting plans and strategies will be supported.
A final report on the GPS committee work was presented at the Church Council meeting on Feb 24, 2015. Click GPS Final Report to Council for the report, Announcement for congregation pdf for the congregation announcement, and here for the APPENDICES.
