My fellow congregation members, I would like to let you all know about a change the Board of Trustees has made to the Leadership Covenant, as of May 7th.
The Board has removed “assume good faith” from the Leadership Covenant and replaced it with “build trust together.” This was done because we feel that we would rather seek to find trust in each other rather than assume good faith in each other. We believe that trusting in each other is closer to our true intent instead of making assumptions about each other. We have chosen to let you know of this decision as it does affect the congregation. We want to be completely open and honest with you about all that we are doing so we can earn your trust as your board and friends. This way we may continue to grow with each other.
