I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
— Isaiah 43:19


The Office of Vital Congregations of the PCUSA is set to work alongside mid council leadership, and leaders of existing congregations, in a process that seeks to help assess, discern and live into transformative actions that increase vitality.  Through intentional spiritual practices and relationship connections, this two-year process takes us deeper into following Jesus Christ, making disciples and being the vital community of Christ throughout particular communities and the world.  Read the announcement here.
