Dear Spirit Friends at Trinity Church,
As we move through pandemic, how can we intentionally prepare to invite and welcome new friends into spiritual community? This is the perfect time for us to lay the groundwork for new future just around the corner.
As we mentioned in our Annual Parish Meeting a few weeks ago, Trinity Church has been invited to join a group of parishes across The Episcopal Church for intentional coaching around inviting and welcoming newcomers and around new ministries.
This initiative, ‘Genesis II: Re-Vision and Renew’ asks:
“Is your congregation ready to see and engage the neighborhood you worship and serve in again for the first time, with fresh eyes, ready for something new God is already creating?”
Trinity’s Wardens and Vestry have meet with the leaders of Genesis II, and a Team is preparing to begin this work. We invite your prayers with this ministry! Please contact Rev. Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org for more detail!
We will focus on creating or deepening partnerships with our neighbors and community, doing so in conversation with other parishes engaged in this same ministry of re-growing intentional community.
What is Genesis-II: Re-Vision and Renew? The website describes it this way:
“Genesis II: Re-Vision and Renew highlights specific practices that strengthen parishes for the challenging, yet exciting, work of launching new ministries. We have a particular focus on the practice of building relationships with fellow parishioners and with the community around our churches. We see our COVID-19 realities and faithful responses to systemic racism as opportunities to practice the agility, adaptability, and neighborhood collaboration embedded in this project.”
