Beginning in April, Church of the Epiphany is setting about the work of praying about how we can build pathways from the community to the church and from the church to the community. We are looking at how we can extend authentic invitations, how we welcome people to our church, and how build connections between ourselves and with God.
The Invite, Welcome, Connect Team is focused on building a focus on relationships into the life of our parish. Beyond simply being a newcomer’s program, Invite, Welcome, Connect is a way for us to build relationships in an intentional way while also listening to how the Holy Spirit is encouraging us into action in our local community and in the world.
To be a member of the Invite, Welcome, Connect Team, we are asking for volunteers that are willing to:
- Pray for our parish, our community, and the world
- Meet once a week for 7 weeks and as the team determines is necessary
- Read the book Invite, Welcome, Connect
- Bring ideas, an open heart, and listening ears
- Recruit other volunteers to serve in the Invite, Welcome, Connect ministry
- Allow the Spirit to lead us in reconnecting with the community around us
