Learning More about the Missional Practices

God is calling us to ministry in our neighborhoods and communities. The Missional Practices provide tool, skills and habits to respond to God’s call.  When we engage the practices stories of hope, of God’s call, of light shining in the darkness, start to emerge. Starting with this fall’s new program year we will be working together on engaging the Missional Practices in our congregations and communities.

Beginning this fall, Covenant Communities Committed to Learning and Growth begins with a collaborative process of learning and implementation of the six Missional Practices.

Our first event begins at the September 10 Presbytery meeting with a presentation by Rev. Bob Armstrong on the Theological Assumptions behind the Missional Practices. For more information about the Presbytery meeting.

On September 11 Pastors are invited to a Pastor’s Conversation with Bob Armstrong at the Presbytery Office from 10 to noon. For more information and to RSVP.

The Covenant Communities Committed to Learning and Growth begins on October 5 at First Presbyterian Church of Succasunna. All congregations are encouraged to be part of the Covenant Communities.  More information and registration.
