Welcome to our Compass
for April to June 2021!

Dear Family,

This Compass is a quarterly report on our Map. The pastors and staff report to you on behalf of the Leadership Team using this tool so that the whole Body can track our progress on our discerned goals, finances, the numbers we keep to track our growth and health, and stories of faith and new partners. We do this for transparency and mutuality. It is called the Compass because it helps us collectively see the direction we are moving.

Our Map is a common project, so when you read this and track along, know that you are helping the whole church to keep moving.

Julie (with Rachel, Ben, and Jonny)

Please note that we are continuing in the discerned direction of our 2020-21 Map. There is more work to do with these Map goals so the Leadership Team Core decided to postpone a new Mapping process until we can be together in person. 


Don’t miss the new faith we’ve witnessed and the goodness we’ve done together in the Stories section.

Our Proverbs

Our Proverbs are the basic statements about who we are and what we care about. The “proverbs” of Circle of Hope expand on the convictions that drive us.

Who We Are

In the Who We Are section we are paying attention to the numbers we keep to track our growth and health as a whole movement.


Check out our progress on our Map in the Goals section (let your pastor know if anything is missing.)

Mutual Finances

Spend some time with the charts in the Mutual Finances section, which describe our Common Fund in detail. Your awareness makes it truly common.

Long-Term Goals

Dream with our five-year goals and beyond in the Long-Term Goals section.

This is a tool for communication and dialogue. If you have follow up questions, comments, or feedback about this publication, please talk to your pastor!
