All pastors in our District have received the Discipleship Network worksheet and resource information. Between now and mid-December, we ask that the leadership of each congregation prayerfully consider their church’s focus on the 5 ‘Roots of Vitality’ listed on that worksheet. We ask that you discuss ways that your church is currently living out that area of vitality as well as possibilities for future opportunities in that area. At this time, your church will be asked if you will be participating in this vitality initiative. Thank you in advance for your prayerful work. We are excited about the possibilities for 2017 as we work to build a strong foundation of faith and hope for the future.
