Rose Chapel UMC, Statesville, NC

In August & September of 2017, Charlotte Brendel and Lyn Sorrells met with nearly 30 members of Rose Chapel UMC on two Sunday afternoons.

Lyn and Charlotte led the church through an honest, hopeful self-assessment the first Sunday.  They helped us focus our new vision and establish clear goals and objectives on the second September afternoon.  Our visioning team is moving forward with designated tasks and regular team meetings creating a new future.

Charlotte and Lyn’s work with Rose Chapel UMC has been encouraging, empowering, challenging and very supportive.  I highly recommend Charlotte and Lyn and the Church Legacy Staff to the churches and pastors of our conference who are ready to revision a new, vital and faithful future building God’s Kingdom in their community.
