This Sunday’s Service – Transformed by Shared Ministry

April 3 Service at 10:30 AM

Rev. Julie Lombard, Minister

“Shared ministry lives out the affirmation that all people are called to ministry. As members of a faith community, we are invited to serve together in a spirit of mutuality as partners. Working cooperatively, we strive to discover, develop, utilize, and support the gifts of each person and, as responsible stewards, to participate in the ongoing creative and restoring activity in our communities and the world.” -Jean Morris Trumbauer

In the fall of 2007, I was part of a team that attended the Northern New England District Governance and Spirituality Workshop in Crawford Notch, NH. I had no idea how attending that weekend workshop would transform me. In 2016 I find myself part of another team at a New England Region Shared Ministries Workshop in Bangor, ME. A journey of transformation unfolds as I reconnect with my 2007 Crawford Notch roommate.

We come together expecting to learn whatever the title is about, but the more meaningful lessons come from being together. Please join us for worship as together we explore this month’s theme of transformation.
