God has great plans for the future of Pilgrim
UMC! It is time again for us to inquire of God what those plans would be. Therefore, a church-wide retreat is planned for
us to come together as one body and look to the future.
West Michigan Conference staff member Rev. Gary Step will be here to lead us through the day. First, we will be introduced
to the Vital Church Initiative (VCI). VCI is a three year process of developing vision and strategy to bring change and vitality
to local churches in the West Michigan Conference. This process will begin in the fall should Pilgrim choose to participate.
Secondly, this retreat will begin a process of
seeking a vision for the present so that we can be more focused and intentional about "Advancing the Gospel of Jesus
This retreat is for everyone who
believes that God is not done with Pilgrim UMC. There is no cost to attend and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Sign
up for this retreat begins January 26.
