Your Congregation–Growing in Christ and Blessing Your Neighborhood

Many of the people who will help you build your congregation in faithfulness to Christ and mission with your community and the world are not sitting in your pews on Sunday mornings. Rather, they are spending Sunday mornings at the neighborhood coffee shop or park. Reading the Gospels and the Book of Acts, we discover that churches began to grow as people shared food on grassy hills and listened to stories in market places, as disciples took companionable walks together and were welcomed into peoples’ homes.

Join with brothers and sisters in Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery as we learn together. Facilitator, the Rev. Dr. Eric Law will lead us in developing imagination and capacity for mission with our neighbors.

The Rev. Dr. Eric Law will introduce us to Respectful Listing and Mutual Invitation on  Thursday, April 16, 10:00 a.m. prior to the Presbytery Gathering at Dardenne Presbyterian Church.

Pastors and church leaders also will gather for learning on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18.  Choose one of two locations:

Friday, April 17, 3:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Westminster Presbyterian Church , Belleville, IL

OR

Saturday, April 18, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Dardenne Presbyterian church, Dardenne Prairie, MO 

Bring a team from your church—pastors and church leaders learning together.

Pay for three and get one free! Bring as many as are willing to come!
