Fall Rostered Leaders Study Conference

In late September, many rostered leaders gathered on the shores of Manitou Lake for a time of worship, study and rejuvenation.  The weather was perfect for being in such a beautiful setting.  Our time together was marked by song and prayer, moments of quiet reflection and jovial laughter.

Rev. Mark Kleiner leads us in music

 

Our sessions were led by Dr. Craig Van Gelder.  We focused on who we have been as a Lutheran church in Canada and how we can dream of moving forward to bring the message of Christ not only into our congregations and ministry settings – but also into our communities.  We were encouraged to experiment – to try out new ideas and see where God might take us as a people called to be in mission for others.
