First Church Lenten Visioning Circles -- Long Range Planning

This Lent — a time traditionally devoted to self-reflection and prayer — we will embark on an exciting spiritual journey to envision our church’s future. Beginning this Sun., Feb. 3, you are invited to sign up for any of a dozen conversation groups, each of which will meet four times in March to move through a discussion program. Most groups will meet after church on Mar. 10, 17, 24 & 31. Others will gather on weekdays or in private homes. The groups are a wonderful way to make new friends, deepen old friendships, and create space for God to enter.

The activity will culminate in “Super Sunday” on Apr. 7 during which we will pull all the pieces together. Please make participation a personal priority. We hope to go deep and reflect on what God and the church mean to us and how we picture the future unfolding. Small-group leaders’ training is Sun., Feb. 24 at 11:30 am. Want to participate? Please contact Bonnie Hester (510/527-1913) or Becky Smith (415/385-7224).
