In 2016 and early 2017, Epworth United Methodist participated in the Missional Congregation Consultation Initiative. With a training cohort and a weekend and evening of visioning, the MCCI Team helped us create a vision for Epworth’s future. Below is the document that was approved by our special Charge Conference on March 5. We invite you to join us in this great time of excitement for Epworth UMC.
In May 2017, we renamed our vision for the future after a passage from Scripture.
“Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”
