Columbia District clergy and laity will gather for training with the IV team on Saturday, February 8th at Tabor Heights United Methodist Church.

2018's event, with the theme of 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' gave us ways to get to know the community in which each of our local churches exist. We will build on that theme this year as the Greater Northwest Area Innovation and Vitality Team leads us in exploring the three practices of a vital church:  inclusioninnovation, and multiplication, all encompassed by the mystery of God. Vitality is present when these are woven into practice collaboratively with both our communities of faith and our neighborhoods/wider communities.

A catered lunch will be provided by Sivalayan Thai, including gluten-free and vegetarian options.

We will worship, learn all together, and expand our understanding and skills in four workshops which each participant will attend. We'll close our time together with the Lord's Supper as preparation for returning to our own communities to include, innovate, and multiply!

You can register as a group from your church. All persons appointed or assigned to a local church are expected to attend and we hope at least one lay person from each local church will attend also.  More are welcome!  There is no cost for this event and lunch will be provided. Registration is through Wednesday, February 5th.
