Forward Focus Information

The Forward Focus Committee of Berea Friendship met for several months beginning in October 2019.  We had a meeting with the District Superintendent and the congregation in March.  We presented our recommendation for the church.  We were going to start working on plans for the church starting with a meeting on April 25th.  Due to Covid, this project was put on hold.  We are now in the process of continuing our work.  The link below will show the plans we presented in March.  We plan to start meeting regularly on October 21st and work on each step of the plans.  We will be asking for the congregations input.  We will be sending out information by mail, e-mail and website.  Please click on the below link to refresh your memory on what was presented in March.  We will be updating our work after week bi weekly meeting.
