From the Leadership Team

Midway Future Seekers

The Leadership Team, staff and worship leaders are now addressing the findings of the SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) in preparing for its next meeting. Each leader is being challenged to brainstorm ways and resources to transform weaknesses and threats to strengths and opportunities.

What can you do? join us in praying for the future of Midway Covenant! May we all trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding; may we all submit to him in all our ways, and (watch him) make our paths straight (Prov. 3:5-6).

Montessori School

Montessori school representatives are working through the required documents for various inspections (Actual question: “Do you know where your Certificate of Occupancy is filed?” Like from back in the 60s??). They now know that they cannot have total occupancy of their preferred rooms, as some are also our preferred rooms for the ministries of the church. We are waiting to hear if they want to continue pursuing Midway Covenant as their future location.

Leadership Team Meeting

The next Leadership Team meeting is Wednesday, August 12, at 7 PM. Concerns and questions you want to address to the Team can be emailed to Chair Ruth Hill, ruthhill27@gmail.com.
