Annual Visioning Meeting (10/25) @
Oct 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Officers and Leadership Circle of the Congregational Church of West Medford | Sanctuary UCC issue this call to the 2020 Annual Congregational Visioning Meeting as defined by our by-laws, the schedule for which was adjusted in a Special Congregational Meeting on 5/31/2020.

 As per the bylaws, the purpose of this annual Visioning Meeting is to: 

a) Review and assess the congregation’s mission, ministries, objectives, and goals; and

b) Make adjustments as called for from the dialogue and discernment. (Article IV. Section B).

 The Leadership Circle and Discernment Team have developed a visioning process centered in scripture and contemplative prayer (should we Link to the practice instructions?). The model will be used over the next year as a congregation-wide spiritual practice, a way to orient our faith and our ministry, and a path to discernment – for now and for the future.

The visioning process begins in an initial meeting (9/27), continues in small prayer circles, reconnects to the whole (10/25), returns to small prayer circles and will continue in this cycle as discernment unfolds in the midst of Covid19 and the safety measures we must practice.

Signed by Joanna Begin, Moderator on behalf of the Leadership Circle

Ministry Center Closed
Oct 26 all-day
Medford Music Studio
Oct 26 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination.” – Plato

As teachers and musicians who have worked with all types of students, we believe the most important aspect of learning an instrument is that the student enjoys him/herself. Lessons are fun, interactive and creative, and we encourage students to use their natural curiosity to explore music. Our studio is a relaxed and comfortable setting where lessons are tailored to the learning style and musical interests of each individual student.

Sanctuary UCC has partnered with Medford Music Studio in the community and have collaborated on events in the past. If you’re interested in exploring their services, please check out their website!
