In February 2015 the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon put forth a definition of what creates a church vitality. The four marks of a vital church include:
- Joyful Leadership
- Sacramental Hospitality
- Mission in the World
- Formation in Christ
In a Sunday Adult Forum, our parishioners took the opportunity to explore “Formation in Christ” and to discuss what it meant for our parish.
A vital congregation creates community that leads its members to grow spiritually by becoming more Christ-like.
