Last Saturday, eleven of our congregations gathered virtually with leaders from our Presbytery for a worship and sending service as we launch our Vital Congregations venture. An initiative of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), these congregations are entering into a communal pilgrimage as they discern where and how the Spirit of God is breathing fresh possibilities and renewed capacity to embody the Good News of Jesus Christ. The service was themed, revitalized by the waters of baptism, entering into the sacred and sending waters once again. Our guest preacher was the Rev. Carlton Johnson, Associate for Vital Congregations. Be sure to listen in and consider sharing this word with your congregations as you remember your own baptism that has begotten you for worship, work, and revitalized witness near and far.
