During the first week of February, I spent my Imagineering time learning about the demographics of the area our church served through the website http://www.missioninsite.com/. The Connecticut Conference of the UCC graciously paid for each member congregation to receive reports about our area. We will be better prepared to serve the needs of our area because of our information about who lives here and what values they embrace.

Imagineers and Evangelists
On Sunday, January 31, I challenged the congregation to be Imagineers and Evangelists. The term Imagineering was coined in the 1940s by Alcoa to describe its blending of imagination and engineering. Anyone can be an Imagineer, coming up with fresh ideas and new ways to reach out to others. Evangelists are those who share the Good News of the gospel of Christ. During the month of February I will be spending one half of a workday each week doing work related to Imagineering and Evangelism.
