Church-Wide Visioning Process Continues During Lent

Tue, Feb 5, 2019

This Lent—a time traditionally given over to self-reflection and prayer—our community has embarked on an exciting spiritual journey to envision our church’s future.

Roughly a dozen Visioning Circles, are meeting four times in March to work through a discussion curriculum.

Most circles are gathering following the morning worship service on March 10, 17, 24 and 31. Other circles are gathering at the church on weekdays, in the evening or in private homes.

On Sunday, April 7, we'll reflect on the conversation as we imagine the path forward. We hope the visioning will help guide our activities and focus our energies during the next three to five years. Individually, we are strong. Together, we are a mighty force.

The visioning process is being coordinated by the church’s Long-Range Planning Committee, church staff and ministers.

We consider this a Lenten practice in which we go deep and reflect on what the church means to us and how we can “magnify the longings of Jesus” to better care for each other and do good in the world. We believe the visioning process will put us in a place of gratitude and hopefulness as we move from Palm Sunday, through Holy Week, and arrive at a joyous Easter celebration on Sunday, April 21.
