Beginning on April 22nd, the Edmonton area pastors are going to be hosting gatherings open to all members of Moravian congregations. We hope these gatherings will provide opportunities to build deeper connections with one another and give us tools to move into the future of our ministry. As each congregation looks to its future and its particular challenges, we believe that there may be ways for us to reimagine our shared ministry in Edmonton that enable us to live fully into our potential.
We recognize that some of the challenges that are faced in our congregations may necessitate larger changes in ministry than in others. These gatherings will also serve to present options for how congregations might choose to try a different model of ministry. We hope that as we are joined together the ideas and opportunities will grow and we will have the ability to care for one another well in the midst of our particular situations.
Our first gathering will be on April 22nd at EMC 1-4pm to do Asset Mapping together for our whole area. There will be a pizza lunch and childcare options. Donations are welcome to cover the costs of the pizza.
The second gathering will be held in May at Good News Moravian Church to further discern area of interest, exploration and energy.
