We are at a doorway that leads into a new way of being church.
At this doorway
we are not alone:
God has invited us to gather courage from the great cloud of witnesses before us,
as we remember what was…
Christ has challenged us to accept his radical call to discipleship,
as we acknowledge what is…
The Spirit has led us to be Christ’s Church,
as we imagine what will be…
At this doorway:
We take courage in the assurance that God is with us;
we affirm our call to go where Christ leads; and
we trust the Spirit to guide us through the challenging space between what was, what is, and what will be.
Surely, we are not alone.
Thanks be to God.
As we greet each new doorway,
let us give all thanks and glory to God,
whose power working in us
can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
Glory to God from generation to generation,
in the church, and through the Spirit,
now and forever,
On January 1, 2019, Kootenay Presbytery will cease to exist as a court of the Pacific Mountain Region which comes into effect January 1, 2019. Consequently, this presbytery website will go offline.
If it is the desire of congregations of Communities of Faith in the south-east area of British Columbia to have some ability to have an online connection to communicate their events and activities of Networks and Clusters, then a new website will emerge to fill this role.
When this occurs and a new website is online Communities of Faith will be notified.
If you have recommendations or ideas for what would need to be available on a new website, please let the current PVT members or Presbytery Reps know what you think. Your ideas could be included in a new site.
In the meantime, and on behalf of Kootenay Presbytery PVT, I thank you for your use and participation in making our Kootenay Presbytery website so useful and informative.
This is the crew KP sent to the Evolve Conference this past weekend… We had a blast!
Peace, and Thanks,
October 12 – 14, 2018
Trinity United Church, Creston, BC
