9/10-12: NWC Presbytery Pastors Retreat

Among the last words that Jesus issued to his disciples in his Olivet Discourse (Mark 13) was the admonition to” Watch” or “Stay Awake. ”  In essence it was a call to take up the mantle of a prophet and to look for the signs of God’s work.  It was a call to attentiveness and contemplation, an invitation to consider well the events taking place around us and look for the presence of God in and among those events.  The prophetic task of giving witness to the Kingdom of God begins with contemplation of the presence of God.  The praying imagination is what gives birth to passionate proclamation.  Using the Olivet Discourse in Mark 13 as background and passages from three Old Testament Sentinels, Habbakuk, Isaiah and Ezekiel, we will explore our calling as pastors and practice that work of staying awake to God’s presence.  As we reflect on these texts as a large group, in small discussion groups and individual silent reflection our hope is to listen for and respond to the voice of God.

April 23-May 6, 2020: Holy Land Trip for NWCP Pastors & Laity

A second presbytery-wide trip to the Holy Land is being offered on April 23 - May 6, 2020. Arrangements are being made with Pilgrims of Ibillin to visit holy sites as well as meet with Christians, Jews, and Muslims in Israel and Palestine. We'll not only deepen our spiritual lives by exploring the ancient sites and stones, but discover where Jesus is present today working for a just peace through the "Living Stones." Anticipated total cost will be around $3200, depending on airfare prices. An itinerary and registration can be found on the Pilgrims of Ibillin website under "Living Stones Pilgrimage" after April 1. https://www.pilgrimsofibillin.org/

You can count on an awe-inspiring and eye-opening time of walking where Jesus walked and finding the footprints of where our risen Lord is still walking there today, in the "Living Stones." If interested, please contact Rev. Charlie Lewis from First Pres. Snohomish at charlie@snopres.org or call/text at 425-328-5283.

4/29-5/3: West Coast Presbyterian Pastors Conference

West Coast Presbyterian Pastors Conference

West Coast Presbyterian Pastors Conference is an annual week of spiritual and physical renewal in Christ for pastors.  At WCPPC we simply gather each year around the centrality of Jesus Christ and His Word and renew our connection to others called by God to pastoral ministry in the Presbyterian family. Our DNA is best described as:

Presbyterian
We are from the Presbyterian/Reformed family, with pastors that largely serve Presbyterian denominations such as the PC-USA, ECO and the EPC. We are welcoming of pastors from other traditions as well.

Evangelical:
We understand this in the classic British sense of the term, as Christ-centered and Bible based.

Egalitarian:
We support both men and women in the pastoral ministry and now intentionally schedule both male and female speakers.

Covenant Community:
Biblical and Theological teaching remain a priority for our conference.  Our commitment to covenant community in small groups is prioritized in our schedule.  Consistent times of worship, rest and laughter continue to make WCPPC a unique continuing education week in the annual ministry life of pastors.

When you dream to follow after God and do amazing things to impact the world, what you think you need is not always what God thinks you need.

2/23: Creation Care @ Bethany PC, Seattle

CREATION CARE

As a hopeful spiritual practice for Lent

Learn more about how to care for creation with hope and joy.

Would you like to care for this beautiful earth as an act of love for God and as a way to draw near to God? Join us on Saturday morning Feb 23 from 9:30 to noon to explore that question.

In the first hour, Janette Plunkett will briefly introduce the connection between creation care and Lent, and Lynne Baab will speak about hopeful spiritual practices. We’ll engage in prayer together with four components – lament, confession, receiving God’s forgiveness, and prayers of dedication.

In the second hour, participants can chose one of five options:

  • practical responses with Janette Plunkett

  • creative responses via art with Sarah and Robbie Sawers

  • creation care in hymns with Sylvia Oines

  • responsible investing with Leola Ross who has worked in institutional investing at Russell

  • brainstorming time for families.      

 There will be fellowship and refreshment breaks.

Fun activities for kids 6 and older will be provided, along with childcare for kids 5 and under.

We are creating a Lenten devotional with weekly suggestions for Scripture, prayer, action, and family engagement. It will be online and accessible for all

The purpose of Lent is weaning us from sin and selfishness so we can be more aware and aligned with God’s will, more willing to be a hopeful participant in His kingdom. This surely  includes a healthy environment and community. 

Join us on Feb 23! And join us during Lent by using the devotional.

2/11-14: Transitional Ministry Workshops

Doing transitional ministry training is an outstanding way to develop pastoral leadership muscles!  And this one is taught by our friends in Seattle Presbytery (Heidi Armstrong, Scott Lumsden, Eliana Maxim, and others) in our backyard—Portland.  

Transitional Ministry Workshops @ Menucha

Change happens - in interim situations and in congregations of longstanding. Build your skills with Week 1 and Week 2 of training (also qualifies as Interim Ministry Training).

Dates:  February 11 - 14, 2019    (Week 1 and Week 2 programs)

Cost: $699 (Includes program fee, triple occupancy room, all meals and materials. Other accommodations available; see our website for details). 

More Info and Registration:  Click Here

Want more details? Here are frequently asked questions.

Q: Is this the same as Interim Ministry Training?

A: It’s close, but not the same thing. Interim Ministry Training has been changing and adapting to our new cultural context for a while now. This particular training is designed to be more up-to-date with the current context — addressing the fact that every church is in some sort of transition or another.

Q: Will I still “get credit” for taking Interim Ministry?

A: Yes. We cover all the topics required for interim training. Also, our instructors are part the PC(USA)’s Interim Ministry Consortium (IMC). See http://oga.pcusa.org/section/mid-council-ministries/ministers/interim-pastors/.

Q: So what’s different about this particular Transitional Ministry Training offering?

A: Though covering many of the same topics, this offering is designed to be more immediately applicable to your current context. It addresses not just the “interim” ministry context, but many other contexts where congregational change is needed — after a long period of stagnancy, as a part of an intentional revisioning process, as a result of congregational conflict, within the context of reestablishing a new vision and mission for ministry.

Q: What do you teach in Week 1 vs. Week 2?

A: Here is what we cover in Week 1 Training:

Leadership is about teamwork, but good leadership starts with you. This first four day seminar will empower you to identify and lead (or be a part of a team leading) meaningful, transformational change in any church context. Learn the basics of congregational dynamics, church systems, effective conflict resolution, power dynamics, and simple strategies for leading change in congregations. Grow as well in your awareness of yourself as a church leader, a person of faith, and gain insights into your strengths and weaknesses as a transitional leader.

Here’s what we cover in Week 2 Training:

Once engaged in an intentional transition (Week I), transformational leaders need to be equipped to continue to lead through the rough waters of change. This second four day seminar further develops the tools of identifying the necessary change, establishing the strategies for change, recruiting a leadership team, dealing with congregational conflict, and sustaining a new culture around renewed identity.
