Did you know that PCUSA has adopted Congregational vitality as a major emphasis for our denomination? Did you ever wonder who our leaders are and what they are doing to move our church forward in vitality?
There’s a way to find out.
You are invited to a weekly online live meeting hosted by the national staff of the Vital Congregations Initiative at 12:00 noon PDT/PST (on both Zoom and Facebook). Tune in any week, hear from a church leader on a particular aspect of vitality and participate in a conversation. There is a different topic each week.
Weekly Wednesday Zoom Gatherings – these are for anyone and everyone in your churches. https://zoom.us/j/95057957584. 12:00 noon PDT/PST each week.
- August 5th – Intentional Authentic Evangelism with a New Worship Community Leader.
1001 new worshiping communities is a movement happening in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). God is raising up leaders in churches and presbyteries who are creating new worshiping communities that are seeking to make and form new disciples of Jesus Christ and developing outreaching ministries that change and transform the world. Riverside Presbytery has 4 New Worshiping Communities!
- August 12th – Spirit Inspired Worship with The Rev. Kim Long.
Ms. Long strives to help church leaders give serious thought to how they lead worship and the theological meanings behind their actions and language. In one of her most popular publications, The Worshiping Body: The Art of Leading Worship, she desires that others see and understand how worship is full of rich and meaningful symbols, including the presider as one of them.
