What does it mean to be a faithful leader in the church during this time and place?  How do we live out our baptismal call in our vocations?  What is God calling me to do?

walking together sunday

Sunday, November 18


At our 2018 Assembly, Bishop Brandt introduced the idea of “Walking Together Sunday.”  

 

"Walking Together Sunday" will be a synod-wide pulpit exchange.  For those choosing to participate, your congregation will be paired with another congregation and/or parish.  Your partner congregation will likely be out of your conference and as much as possible, a different context.  You will know your partner before Fair Hills so that you may have time to connect face-to-face with the leader(s) of that congregation/parish.  Please know you and your partner congregation have the freedom to agree to a different date if the 18th does not work on both ends. 

 

You will be leading worship and preaching in another congregation.  At the beginning of the service or sermon, you will be asked to bring greetings on behalf of your congregation/parish, introduce any congregation members, share a bit about your ministry setting, bring greetings on behalf of the synod, share a bit about being “church together” and of course, preach a Spirit-filled sermon.  

 

The synod office will be creating a number of resources for the day which you may or may not choose to use.  We are imagining a sample sermon, bulletin inserts, a video.  As a result, your ministry site will be responsible for mileage.


THANK-YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE EXPRESSED INTEREST IN PARTICIPATING - MORE INFORMATION WILL BE OUT SOON!
