Congregational Vitality Conversations

Four Congregational Vitality conversations will be happening over the course of the next six weeks! These conversations are a part of the transition process and allow us to gather data from everyone about how Good Shepherd is doing vis-a-vis the seven vital signs of a healthy congregation. You’ll remember that we had a preliminary conversation about this with the Rev. Dr. Anne-Marie Jeffery, Canon for Congregational Vitality, on January 15. (Video and info here from that meeting.) 


We are hoping that everyone will participate in one of these one-hour small-group discussions. As a reminder, gathering this information is a required part of the transition process. Please fill out this form to let us know which meeting you plan to attend, or sign up in person at church. We should have full details of all the exact dates and times by next week.
