OPEN SPACES HIGHLIGHT!
This meeting will kick off our vibrancy journey, with our aim of becoming “Vibrant Christ-Centered Communities”. Which makes us ask: “What does it look like?” During Open Spaces we will have two groups discussing Visualizing Vibrancy Using The Great Ends of the Church. The first group will be just pastors/teaching elders, and the second group will be just ruling elders and guests. (There will be a third group for clerks of sessions who will be reviewing session minutes, if needed. Upon completion, these clerks are invited to the second Vibrancy group).
Come with your thoughts and suggestions – we want to hear from you!
