Ministry Description The Pittsford Congregational Church congregation enjoys the opportunities to connect with one another before and after worship. The time with children during the service is enjoyed by all ages. Members appreciate a service and message that relates to their daily life. The members of the congregation enjoy participating in the worship services. What are the perceived issues and challenges are you facing in your congregation as your pastor departs? The population of the church is aging and it is getting harder to find lay leaders. Finding a path for the church to move into the future is important. The church strives to be helpful and caring although some feel the church needs to be more involved with the community. A strong “caring” team to visit and offer communion to those who cannot get to church has begun and needs to continue. Primary Goals for Interim The church needs to come together to stay together during this transition. Finding ways to keep current members and friends interested in attending services and activities is important. Exploring the possibilities of a half or full-time pastor will need some work. Assistance with developing a revised and workable governance structure for the current church capacity is another important goal.
