News, Connections and Photos from the life of the faith community at CAPC Oakland
This decision was confirmed at our leadership retreat this past weekend and in the holy conversation discussion with all those present at last week’s service.
In evaluating the service that we’ve offered for the past 5 months Monte noticed several things:
We are discontinuing the service to reassess what we need, want and can provide with the best use of our resources. We’ll then start again with a service that will be more focused around meditation, rather than different spiritual practices, most likely on a weeknight. Lina Foltz, Lane Stahl and Stewart Washington are helping in this conversation.
This isn’t a failure, but rather a successful risk of starting a new ministry. We talked about something new, and did it – even as it cost us financially and resource-wise. We are learning from our risk – not to keep risking, but rather to refocus our original ministry vision that corresponded differently to our perceived needs than we originally planned. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks!
Grateful for all of you and what God is calling us to
– Pastor Monte
