Hello! I am on the education committee at my church and we are interested in knowing what other churches are using for Sunday School curriculum and if they are enjoying it.
Does the senior pastor of a CRC church have to lead the installation service for elders and deacons or can an associate pastor (who is also ordained in the CRC as a minister of the Word) handle this responsibility?
I am looking for a Christmas liturgy to use this December. Got any good suggestions?
I am searching for a collection of benedictions for worship. Got any ideas?
Our church may be looking to switch our web host in the near future (we currently use iPower). What do you all use for your church's web host?
I was wondering if the congregation has the right or ability to ask the current elders be removed and new instated?
The current board of elders at our church voted to dismiss our pastor without any say from the rest of the church. Can something be done to reject the elders' decision? Did they have the right to do this?
Can anyone share with me their staffing grid (job position titles and how many hours each position works) for a church with 300-350 members?
Are World Missions & Home Missions still two separate ministries? I had heard that they were combining. Our church has been taking separate offerings for them and I was wondering if that is correct.
Our church (Trinity CRC) is considering changing to the model of having a Senior Pastor and an Associate Pastor. Do you use this model? If so, would you be willing to share job descriptions for BOTH positions?
Does anyone have a good suggestion for Adult Bible Study/Small Group materials?
We have a few high school exchange students attending our church regularly who have no Christian background. Any suggestions for good resources to introduce them to the Bible and Jesus?
From what I can tell we only accept straight transfers from RCA, EPC, and ECO. Does this mean that anyone coming from PRC, URC, PCA, etc. must profess their faith again in the CRC?
I am looking to set up a protection policy in an older generation church that wants to focus more on youth. I'm looking to put a policy in place for programs running from nursery to high school. Any ideas?
Have any churches considered switching from a 501(c)(3) status to 508(c)(1)(a)?
Does anyone presently use cloud storage for Council documents or have tips/suggestions for an online storage of Council files?
We are looking for a good computer program to access our membership records. Got any recommendations for something that's easy to use and makes it easy to access information?
Should the congregation vote to accept the changes to the By-laws and Articles of Incorporation or only receive them as reference or information?
I am a clerk of council and need to transfer the credentials of a minister who has since retired and joined another congregation. Is this an actual form or can I simply draft a letter?
We're a smaller church and our Sunday School teachers are having a hard time because we only have a few kids and they're all different ages and levels and not all of them attend regularly. Any tips?
I'm looking for resources on small group models. Any suggestions?
Is it prudent or is it appropriate for the body of Elders to reverse a decision made by full Council?
Does anyone have access to appropriate sermons on DVD which could be used in an emergency if the pastor or guest pastor is suddenly unavailable?
Has anyone come across resources or study materials on hermeneutics? I am interested in starting a series with my high school students and would appreciate any ideas.
The congregation where I presently serve as an interim pastor would like to create a congregational resource database. What's been your experience? What rules need to be put in place?
