Park Grove Community Church has lost its pastor and is closing its doors, unless it reinvents itself, despite itself...with the help of Chuck.

Chuck shuffles through Rummage Sale skeletons and broken lamps to illustrate The Committee has been asleep at the wheel. “Our community has changed, but we’ve stayed the same.”
To better understand the church’s purpose, Chuck reminds the overly confident “good ideas” committee it just isn’t good enough. More important is the critical question “Why are we here?”
Evangelism, the “E-Word,” rears its ugly head. But The Committee takes a refreshingly different look at evangelism, discovering that the poor Mr. E-word may just be simply misunderstood.
Chuck’s amusing trip to “Whoville” is what it takes for The Committee to better understand “who” lives in the surrounding community, and that the Who should drive every decision The Committee makes.
Playing a whistle-blowing referee, Chuck once again amusingly derails the small group with an investigation of discipleship
When the lights go out, it illuminates the need for innovation, as the inimitable Chuck helps The Committee to “see the light,” that more innovation is essential for the church.

The aging Compass Committee must confront the elephant in the room. Congregations are growing older. For the church to survive, younger and older adults must work together. Easier said than done.
As the nerve-racking Jenga Game takes center stage, Chuck mediates The Committee debate over how older leaders must make mental and physical space for younger leaders.
Time’s up! The long and arduous process—with all its emotional ups-and-downs—comes to an end. Will the Compass Committee decide to close the church’s doors or keep them open?
