It’s time to move forward! Join us as we come together to address the current realities of the state of the Church and look forward with hope and anticipation for the future. We will connect with one another in worship, large in large group plenaries, and connect in small groups for conversation. We will lament, pray, celebrate, plan, and engage one another as beloved community. We will reimagine and begin to sketch out what it means to be God’s Church for God’s people at this time. Together, we will seek to move forward with a renewed vision of hope and vitality. Participants will leave with ideas, resources, and inspiration for the ministry in their context.
