Visioning Questions:

February 2019

  1. How does our church encourage/support/facilitate children's spiritual development?
  2. How does our church practice and teach prayer?
  3. What does our church do to sustain/enrich personal devotional life? (e.g. readings, resources, relationships, small groups etc.)
  4. Why do we want someone to come to our church?

5. How would you make it inviting and easy to join our church?

  6. If there were no limitations, what would evangelism look like?

  During the General Conference 2/19 there is a chance that there will be a split in the denomination. In 3/19, Clergy in our conference will meet to discuss. This event causes a couple of questions:
