HCI Weekend

Our HIC Weekend is Here!

April 1-3, 2016, this weekend.

The Healthy Church Initiative Process up to now has been a two year process.  Our HCI team of nine people had shared learning experience with Greenville Kavanaugh UMC. We met monthly, read and studied books about our mission as Christians, prayed together, and encouraged the Board to go on to year two of the process. This second year has been spent gathering data, writing summaries, doing interviews and now, our Consultation Weekend is here.

Here is a summary of what to expect:
