To WDC Congregations,
Grace to you and peace. We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers constantly, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
Therefore, encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
In the spirit of these words from 1 Thessalonians, the WDC Executive Board is initiating a conference-wide listening process over the next year, to empower the vitality of WDC congregations by hearing your stories, offering ongoing relationship, and supporting your witness and mission. This will involve a three-person listening team from WDC visiting congregations for worship and to facilitate a congregational conversation about what is most vital to your congregation, your hopes for the future of your congregation, and what resources from WDC can best support your mission.
Below is a letter that was sent to WDC congregations sharing more background and details, with an invitation for congregations to sign up to participate. We look forward to your response and welcome your questions!
