Community Meeting (a pretty important one)

A lot has happened to our community recently. Our minister (me) got the boot from the denomination we were part of. Our community voted to keep the minister (again, me), which meant our vote was to both leave the denomination, and since the denomination owns the building, to find a new home. It’s been a lot. And while all that […]

Some Principles Before We Vote

If you’re part of our community, you know that our denomination is deciding if they will ask us to leave. I (Doug) wrote a book that raised some red flags for them, so they’ll decide soon whether my credentials will be revoked.

Community-Wide Business Meeting

Once a year, our community takes a Sunday to deal with the business of church-family life. After a report on where we’ve been and where we are today, we’ll make some projections about where we’re going in 2009. It’s a delightful part of our community life, but if you’re not part of NRCC, it won’t be very relevant to you. Check back next week.
