As we are continuing to move forward out of the pandemic of the past two years, things have changed in our lives, our communities, and our churches, and we are still, and may be for a time, trying to figure out what’s next. The pandemic has accelerated dynamics that were present in churches even before COVID that affect worship attendance, member engagement, and resources. Without intentional effort, churches can slip into focusing mostly on survival or trying to return to a former reality. In this seminar, Rev. Vicky Curtiss, author of “Guidelines for Communal Discernment,” will teach a discernment process and prayerful approach for congregational leaders to assist their churches in discovering who God calls them to be and do in the present and into the future.

The Zoom link will be sent out to those registered on Thursday, April 28. Participants are asked to read “Guidelines for Communal Discernment” in advance of the course.

Leader: Rev. Victoria G. Curtiss has been a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 1980, serving as a pastor, spiritual director, presbytery executive, church consultant, and director of two non-profit organizations. She is currently interim co-pastor of Edgewater Presbyterian Church in Chicago. Vicky authored “Guidelines for Communal Discernment” published by the PCUSA Office of the General Assembly, which participants are encouraged to read in advance.
