Music at Holy Communion plus their location right on the Main street of a resort area

Both have good solid lay leadership and are enjoying getting to know one another.  They have been sharing resources and helping each other in areas of need.

Challenges

Working together  is new so there will be challenges

Lake Geneva's building needs some updates to be more welcoming to the community and need some help in seeing where those connections are.

Comments

These two churches are 10 miles apart with St. John the Divine, Burlington located in a typical Wisconsin town and Holy Communion, Lake Geneva in a vacation spot especially for Illinois residents. We seek someone who can continue the relationship building between these two communities. They have been meeting for 6 months to share resources and ideas. Both have strong solid lay leadership active in the wider community and they seek a spiritual leader who can support the work they are doing and nourish them in their spiritual life. There is an excitement with working together as well as a sense of connectivity with the communities around them and that is inspiring!
