Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

Vital Church Initiative Pre-Consultation Workshop Follow-Up

If you missed the January 14 VCI Pre-Consultation Workshop with Naomi Garcia or just want to refresh your memory, her hand outs are available here.  The Pre-Consultation Workshop Participant Workbook is an outline of her presentation.  “Did You Know?” highlights many of the facts in the video that she used to show just how much culture has changed in recent years.

The All-Church Workshop on February 1, 2014 from 10:15 am – 3:00 pm will in large part, be based on The Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations by Bishop Robert Schnase.  In the Fall of 2012, members of the congregation read and Pastor Mark preached on The Five Practices of Fruitful Living, which is also by Bishop Schnase.  This book is about living out those qualities individually, but the basic idea is the same as the book for churches.
