On Saturday, March 7, Leadership Team met for a retreat and decided on this as an annual vision for ministry:
“We will cultivate beloved community by deepening relationships within and beyond our congregation.”
The following day was the last time we worshiped together in our building before the pandemic shut down. Cultivating beloved community has looked a lot different in 2020 than we imagined.
The word “Beloved” was spoken over Jesus at his baptism and transfiguration. It’s a reality already true but not yet fully realized for all of us.
