SEEKING SEARCH COMMITTEE MEMBERS

As TriCon evolves toward the future with a new ministerial team, the Diaconate is looking for individuals to serve on the Search Committee to nominate our next settled Senior Minister. According to our by-laws, members are nominated by Diaconate and voted on at a Congregational Meeting (which will be held this October.) 

This committee will work closely with the Transition Team in the fall while the Church Profile is compiled. They will move forward into the winter while the Profile is reviewed by the congregation.

As we voted on last December 11, Rev. Brown will have the first opportunity to submit his Ministerial Profile for consideration by this committee, should he choose to answer TriCon’s call. Pending a “positive recommendation from the Search Committee, the congregation will vote on calling Rev. Brown to be our settled Senior Minister.”

If you are interested in serving your faith, are able to commit time to frequent meetings, can make a commitment to confidentiality, openness, and building consensus, please consider the Search Committee.

Please contact Leslie Mahoney leslie@mahoneyarhcitects.com if you are interested or have questions.



NEW CONFIRMATION PROGRAM

Beginning in mid-September 2017, Confirmation Class will be offered to SOPHOMORES in High School.

 

We are very excited to begin a renewed program that seeks to engage students in exploring the relevance of faith and spirituality in the real world. We will meet twice a month from October 2017 through May 2018.

 

EXPERIENCED MENTORS have agreed to mentor STUDENT GROUPS rather than the former 1 to 1 model. Groups will be formed and assigned to mentors in September.

Confirmation Program fee is $150

more info will be shared soon on our Confirmation Program webpage at www.triconchurch.org/confirmation

Sign Up Now for the Lawnmower “Swap Plus” on 9/23/17

In order to help our community move to a much healthier and quieter way to care for our yards, Concord’s Comprehensive Sustainable Energy Committee (CSEC), is pleased to announce a Lawnmower “Swap Plus” event on September 23rd from 9am to 1pm at Concord Public Works, 133 Keyes Road.
The event is held in collaboration with Concord Public Works and Quiet Communities (www.quietcommunities.org), is open to all Concord residents, and will feature demonstrations of cordless (battery-powered) electric lawn care equipment. Up to 100 residents will have the opportunity to trade in their gasoline-powered mowers and receive a significant discount on a new, highly-rated EGO electric mower. We expect strong interest in the lawnmower swap part of this event and Town rebate monies are limited. Therefore online pre-registration (at coolerconcord.org/sustainable-yards/) is highly recommended to reserve a mower and a $100 rebate from the Town.
If you have any questions, please contact Jill Appel at jill.appel@comcast.net. We look forward to seeing you there as together we begin the Electric Lawn Care Revolution in Concord!
