We are entering another new adventure as we live out the second part of our mission statement, “To Make Christ Known”. The Reverend Mark Sullivan is leading us in this journey of discovery for the next year.
Once each month Fr. Mark is our celebrant at morning worship, and uses the sermon time to prepare us for the training. He then uses the coffee hour to begin a discussion focusing on:
We know how Jesus taught, but how do we tell the story?
How does this pertain to St. Luke’s and Seaford?
What are ways to evangelize that we can explore?
We are planning 12 monthly training exercises with Fr. Mark. Every member of St. Luke’s is welcomed and encouraged to attend. If we are to continue to thrive as a lay-led parish, we need to have many people who are equipped for parish ministry.
We are using the book, Cultivating the Missional Church: New Soil for Vestries and Leaders, by Randolph Ferebee, Morehouse Publishing, New York, 2012.
Here is an outline of the topics we will be covering in the coming sessions.
