Learning Communities

The Idea…

In the fall of 2017 we launched Learning Community Cohorts to listen, discern, experiment and reflect together on what God is up to in our neighborhoods and communities.  These cohorts were made up of a few individuals from several congregations throughout the Presbytery.

In April 2018 we merged these cohorts with our quarterly Presbytery Gatherings. Each quarterly Presbytery Summit includes significant time for story-telling and reflecting on what God is up to and how we are partnering with God.  We invite anyone interested in this process to attend our quarterly Presbytery Summits (you do not need to be a pastor or elder to attend!).

Leader/Pastor Cohort: Pastors and church staff members involved or interested in missional work are invited to be part of the separate Learning Community cohort that meets six times throughout the year. Each gathering will have a specific theme we explore together and each person will set an experiment around that theme, which will be reflected upon at the next gathering.
