A Message from Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC)
In an effort to help our church family process the news of Pastor Andy leaving us, the Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPRC) has created this document, below, to pass along truthful and accurate statements about Wesley’s change of pastors. It is our desire to foster a time of positive communication that can move our church forward in the healthiest of ways. Our committee asks for all Wesley members to have fact-based conversations about the transition we are going through. In this way, we can avoid rumors and misunderstandings. If you have any questions in the days, weeks, or months ahead, don’t hesitate to meet with a SPRC member to talk. In addition, look for meetings to be scheduled periodically where you can ask questions and have informative conversations with Pastor Andy and the SPRC about the transition our church is going through.
