Plan ahead: Our Diocese is beginning a wonderful process called Arise Together in Christ. It is a total Parish experience designed to spiritually renew us while providing opportunities for us to grow in Faith and community. It is a way into the future as a Church of hope. The heart of this process will be gathering of small groups of people to read and pray with the Scriptures. Renew international (They have many years of experience) will provide training for those who will lead this process in our parish. We hope that as many people as possible will see this as a moment of grace and will participate. There will be sign-up sheets available in September and we will begin the gathering in the Fall 2016 and continue for 6 faith-sharing weeks of Season one. If you would be interested in serving as a small group host or leader please signup at the information table. (Training will be provided).
This Fall let us join together in small groups for six weeks to read and pray the Scripture. Please sign-up today so that we can begin to form the groups.
