“Let It Be a Dance” during 2020 – 2021

Each year when the Board and Ministry Council meet together in January to strategize Fellowship needs and goals, we select an overarching theme for the upcoming program year. During the interim period prior to calling a settled minister, the Fellowship will be dancing together. Leading and following, giving and taking, learning and growing as we figure out just what we want for our future, and who will best lead us there.

Here are the themes each month:

August        Flow                                February

October       Balance                          April
November   Strength                          May

2017-2018 – Love Calls Us On

For the 2017 – 2018 program year our overall theme was “Love Calls Us On.” This phrase comes from the Jason Shelton/Kendyl Gibbons hymn, “Life Calls Us On.” Each month we focused on a word or idea that may be one of the many ways we’re called in life.
