retreat on November 3, 2018 at 9:00 AM in our St. Peter’s campus social hall to be part of the visioning process for our shared ministry. At this initial meeting we will be working on a shared “mission statement” and provide a list of thoughts, hopes, and dreams for what our community might look like by September 2022. It is our greatest hope and desire that we would have as much participation in this process as possible and we would like to hear from as many of our sisters and brothers in Christ as possible.
Following this initial task force meeting, we believe there will be a minimum of three sub task forces formed, potentially more based on our initial gathering, that will begin to work out the details of how we will proceed to make our new vision a reality among us. Right now, our leadership envisions a sub task force on the following areas: Public Proclamation (how we worship and share the gospel), organization (how we will most effectively organize our ministry teams, staff, Administrative Systems to accommodate our new model of ministry) and Welcoming (procedures for how we would extend invitations to other communities of faith who might be interested in being part of the UPG.)
We are excited about the possibilities of our community of faith. We look forward to the journey that we have embarked on and hope and pray that all of you will actively participate in these formation events in order that God’s will be done among our community and our shared hopes and dreams may become a reality.
May God continue to bless us on this holy pilgrimage!
