The Mission Resources Committee has posted the Application for Fair Share Adjustment for 2017 on the Diocesan website and invites congregations to prayerfully join in this process as needed. The application can be downloaded HERE, under Mission Resources, or at the link below. A reduction in Fair Share can be requested by congregations who determine that they are unable to meet their full asking for a particular calendar year.
This year's application deadline is January 27, 2017. As part of this discernment process for adjustment, attendance is required at one of the two scheduled meetings with MRC, and other applicant churches, at St. Andrew's Church in Hopkinton. The meeting dates are Saturday, February 11 at 9:00 AM and Wednesday, February 15 at 6:00 PM. Decisions about adjustments will be made by mid-March and presented to Diocesan Council for approval.
The Mission Resources Committee, a committee of Diocesan Council, administers the Fair Share adjustment process and provides mission grants to congregations, funded directly from the annual Diocesan budget.
