Join the Project Thrive Zoom MeetingPastor’s Pen
Crievewood, along with 17 other area churches, has partnered with the Center for Healthy Churches out of Belmont University to participate in Project Thrive, which is designed to create opportunities for our church to reflect on our strengths and ministry focus, our unique context, and specific thriving traits. In 2021, we will have a series of 3 congregation-wide conversations to talk about the past, present, and future of Crievewood. Our Thrive Team will host these conversations, listen intently, and then work together to form an action plan and strategies to help our church thrive in the 21st century.
This Sunday, January 24, at 1:00 is our first congregation-wide conversation as part of Project Thrive. We will meet on Zoom for approximately two hours. We’ll be together as a large group at first to receive an overview and then break out into smaller groups, led by members of our Thrive Team, for conversation. It promises to be a great way to connect with others, to reflect on the place of Crievewood in our lives together, to hear some wonderful stories, and to provide valuable information as we work to help Crievewood continue to thrive in the future.
Our goal is to have 75-100 people participating. As of Tuesday morning, we’ve had nearly 50 people RSVP to attend. We’d love for you to RSVP by clicking on the button below; it helps us to plan better if we know who is going to be there. But more importantly, we hope you’ll join us for the conversation on Sunday at 1:00 whether or not you’ve RSVPed. Anyone 7th grade to 107 years old with a connection to Crievewood is welcome to participate!
