Thrive With 3
Making the Most of Ministry
Our congregation is what we make of it. The same can be said of the invitation we face each day to live a life of integrity; it is, as always, what we make of it. In the year ahead, from many different angles, we will take up that invitation by asking ourselves: “What Does It Mean to Live a Life of...?”
We are focusing that question on a particular theme with each month. This approach, called Theme-Based Ministry, is an invitation to go deeper. With weekly services, a shared collection of readings and resources, and monthly small reflection circles called Heart & Soul Groups, we will live for several weeks with a series of questions on each topic. This approach to ministry will be a challenge to walk our talk — to take up the question “How shall we live? — with growing intention. I'm excited to think bout the possibilities that might unfold from our deepening in this way together.
I'm pleased to announce that our topics for 2013-14 will be:
In the coming months you'll be hearing much more about this new way of doing ministry. As you do, I hope you'll give serious thought to joining one of the Heart & Soul Groups as a way of deepening your own journey.
Information about those themes, and our approach to this style of ministry, is available at Theme-Based Ministry.
In faith and love,
