Friday, June 3rd– Sunday, June 5th
Reverend Vander Tuig will be visiting Grace Lutheran Church to work with the church council, teach a congregational workshop, as well as preach at Sunday services. We will also be holding a congregational dinner during the weekend. Attendance is strongly encouraged.
A “congregational workshop” is designed and offered to help as many of our members of local churches to make the paradigm shift from membership to discipleship. This is a process and may take a generation to complete. So this workshop is only a beginning.
This is not an easy transition, but will be necessary for us to become effective again in reaching people who do not know Jesus. Therefore the invitation to offer this in your church requires a vote of the church council and the support of both the chair of the council and the pastor of the congregation.
In this workshop I will present some Biblical concepts that will hopefully challenge, inspire and encourage our people to remember who we are as the Body of Christ and to whom we belong: Jesus.
This workshop is not designed as a church assessment that offers an in-depth evaluation of the effectiveness of the congregation or of it’s staff and pastor/s. It is not a conflict resolution process that would seek to discover dysfunction, hurt and misunderstandings and then work toward health and reconciliation.
