Envisioning 20/20 Team to Report to Congregation on Sunday, May 15
At our 9:00 am and 11:00 am services on Sunday, May 15, the Envisioning 20/20 Team, at the
invitation of the Session, will provide a progress report to the congregation on a series of proposals that have evolved
from the congregational meetings conducted in January, February, and March. As members of the E20/20 Team, we ask that each of you make
special effort to attend one or both services. We are especially hopeful that as many Session members and Deacons will attend as possible,
because you will play important roles in expanding and extending the work of the congregation and the Envisioning 20/20 Team.
As a quick reminder, more than 125 members attended each of the three
congregational meetings. At the first, we
talked about where we have been as a church, and what our strengths have been. At the second, we talked about
where we are and which of our ministries seem likely to flourish in the future. At the third, we talked about where we
might go and the God-sized dreams that might take us there. At the meetings on May 15, we'll talk about the
ministries, or areas of emphasis, that arose from discussion at the congregational meetings. We'll talk through some proposals that might
stretch our traditional expectations in each of these ministries. And, we'll talk through some action plans that should give life to the proposals for
each ministry and should serve as touchstones to more and better ideas in the future.
At each congregational meeting, the objective of the E20/20 team was to listen
to and learn from the congregation without making premature
decisions. At the same time, we were beginning to learn to listen for and to discern God's will, to ensure that decisions we make -- as a
congregation -- reflect God's will rather than ours alone. This is a deeply rewarding experience, and it is one that we hope to share throughout
the congregation, so that, in time, the decisions we make will share a unity of spirit. Please join us in prayer in our efforts to reflect your will and
to listen for and to discern God's will, that we might serve God in unity of spirit. And please join us at the 9:00 and/or 11:00 am services on
Sunday, May 15. Envisioning the future of the church is an ever-evolving process, and we need your input and involvement!

Beauty on the Boulevard! Can you dig in the dirt? Can you plant flowers?
Can you rake up leaves and other debris? Can you carry flats of plants?
Sure you can – and you can make a difference on the Boulevard.
The Deacons’ Outreach Committee is working with the City of Davenport to improve the
flower beds along Kirkwood Boulevard. First Pres. is committed to fixing up two flower beds
on Kirkwood & Iowa and Kirkwood & Pershing (in front of the church and the west parking
lot). We are asking the congregation for monetary donations to purchase flats of annual
flowers. Each bed will take a minimum of two flats, however more will really make them pop.
We are also asking for help on planting day.
The city will drop off mulch sometime in early May (depending on weather) and on
the following Saturday, a crew will head out with rakes,
gloves and shovels in hand to clean up and plant both beds. We should be done in two hours – a short amount of time to make a great
improvement to the neighborhood. You’ll be notified of the exact date on Facebook and email. For more information or to help, contact Diane
Schreiner (email@example.com), Tom Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Mia Carr (email@example.com). If you’d like to help purchase
flowers, please “boulevard flowers” on the memo line of your check.
