During the first 3 months with Rob Stewart

as Transitional Pastoral Leader

  • recommitted to focusing on “healing spiritual wounds"

  • met and bonded every Sunday in a Weekly Gathering on Zoom (via checking in, prayers, music, Word, Mutual Sharing of Reflections, and communion)

  • created a new bright-attractive, easy to use website that explains who we are, what we do (services and events), displays events on a calendar, introduces the team, offers a donation area (QR)

  • increased the use of music in zoom gatherings including “Singalong with Michael”

  • gained three regular online contributors

  • met twice to assemble Blessing Bags (hygiene essentials, snacks, socks, etc) for our unhoused neighbors

  • will meet monthly at Community Presbyterian in Cathedral City at 1pm for a Community Brunch (beginning March 2022)

  • printed Business Cards for handing out (and including in Blessing Bags) that includes a QR code for making nearly instant donations)

  • printed a Business Card for “The Rev” Rob

  • sent two weekly email announcements about worship and activities to about 17 people

  • rejuvenated the Facebook Stonewall Ministries page

  • agreed to host a Booth at the annual Gay Days festival in Cathedral City (late March)

  • launched into a new Coachella Valley Presbyterian Partnership with 3-5 other Presbyterian congregations for cooperative mission to our area

  • committed to taking Good News out to the community by holding “community connecting” events / conversations in public places (such as a senior center, The LGBTQ Center, local bar, etc)

  • committed to a vision of offering people space for sharing their lives, spiritual struggles and joys, etc. while providing activities that people can DO (hands-on mission projects) that benefit neighbors
