Healthy and growing congregations do not happen by accident. They are marked by clear focus on their identity, purpose and vitality-focus that lets them set and meet goals for God’s mission and ministry. Identity, purpose and vitality are qualities, not quantities. Rev. Megan Morrow, Assistant to the Bishop of the Nebraska Synod, will help us reflect on these qualities of First, based on our responses to the congregational vitality survey, so we keep growing in our discipleship and God’s mission for the next 150 years!
