Boldly Venture: Stage 3
January will begin the last stage of our journey to World Conference. We’ll continue to be spiritually formed, keep learning, and prepare to share in community. Learn more about this stage below and about previous stages online.
Join Us for Lent
This year we have an extraordinary opportunity: Our journey to World Conference and Lent overlap. Daily themes for World Conference will provide a weekly focus during Lent. The Formation Ministries Team and the Center for Living Water are partnering to provide some fantastic opportunities for reflection and growth.
Start by reading Katie Harmon-McLaughlin’s article, “Courage: A Faith That Matters.”
Plan now to make space in your life for the weekly Lenten offerings, beginning 22 February. Details about each week will be found on this website soon.
Review Legislation in Exploration Sessions
New for 2023 World Conference is an opportunity to explore legislative proposals with others around the church through weekly Zoom gatherings.
A single resolution will be the focus each week during the Exploration Sessions series. Participants will share perspectives and listen to others in a facilitated session. Five sessions will be offered each week to accommodate time zones and busy schedules. Exploration Sessions will begin 9 January and continue through March. All are welcome.
Registration is required and will open soon.
Read proposed legislation and see a summary of actions.
Words of Blessing
Members and friends may offer words of courage and blessing to be shared at World Conference during the Communion service 23 April. No matter where you are, you’re invited to participate in the spirit of fellowship and worship that connects us in sacred community.
