Calvary Family,
What is the future of the church, including our congregation, in a rapidly changing world?

That is the question we will explore during a 9:30-12:30 Zoom meeting on Saturday morning October 17. You are cordially invited to join this participatory discussion led by the Church Renewal Lab and co-presenters Keith and Larry Doornbos. During the Zoom gathering we will discuss:

  • What is the future of the church in a rapidly changing world?
  • What is our “why” and why is it important to know?
  • What are the essentials of church vitality and how is Calvary doing with these essentials?
  • How can Calvary reach her full redemptive potential by investing in listening, imagining and doing?

This three hour Zoom gathering is the beginning of a two-year renewal journey focused on becoming an intentional missional congregation that makes more and better disciples. During the next two years Calvary will be exploring three important questions: Who are we? Where are we headed? How will we get there? This exploration will be done in tandem with five other congregations in the Great Lakes region guided by the Church Renewal Lab that began at Calvin Seminary in 2013 and is directed by one of Calvary’s former pastors (1983-1993) Dr. Keith Doornbos.
