Our team has completed our Congregational Profile, as well as put together a snapshot.

Have you seen the snapshot? It really is worth watching! It took a group effort but we are quite pleased with the finished product. You can find it at www.chchristian.org/aboutus.

We are now on Step 5 (see chart at the bottom of this page)! We will be getting profiles in the next week or two. Please continue to pray for the one God has been preparing for us. Please also remember to pray for the Search & Call Team for divine guidance, and prayers for our congregation through this transition.

Search & Call meeting discovery

Thank you everyone for sending back completed surveys sent to you several weeks ago. The Search committee has collated your replies and will be sending another survey soon to help us narrow down your priorities and also one to share your desires for the strengths and personality traits for a settled pastor. Please prayerfully fill them out, we need your thoughts to make the best choice for the future of CHCC.  


Two subjects that you mentioned were better communication with the community and more use of our facility by outside groups. We have started a fund for a digital exterior sign that will make it possible to share information with passersby. Your designated contributions to that fund will help it happen. Prior to going into Phase 1 and 2, the following groups used our building on a regular basis:

 

1. Samoan Congregational Christian Church

2. Mead Pre School Co-Op

3. CWF/JOY Circle

4. Women’s Book Club

5. English Language School

6. TOPS/KOPS

7. North Star Senior Center

8. Bridge Club

9. VASA Swedish Group

10. GA

11. Eastern Washington Genealogy Society

12. Finlandia (Finnish) Group

13. Spokane Falls Doll Club

14. Washington State Quilters

15. Periodic renters: Hunter’s Club—(Metal detectors hunting), Class Reunions/Weddings/Receptions/Funerals/Memorials

16. Annual renters: Chattaroy Christmas Club

17. Occasional renters: Governmental agencies holding town hall meetings regarding neighborhood developments, as well as AVISTA and STA

 

Our building is used a great deal to support the community and we get requests often due to the wonderful parking and building set up. All groups love the location of the kitchen, fellowship hall and restrooms. As well as the access without stairs is always a drawing card.

New member to the Search & Call Ministry Team

We have heard your voice that stated it was important for an Elder Chairperson to be part of this process. Therefore, we have invited Marge Nave to join our team, and she has graciously accepted the call.

Thank you all for your input. We will keep you updated as we proceed in this journey.
