Recap of December Ministers' Gathering
Tuesday December 8th


What inspiration are you getting this Christmas season? That was our opening (and lively) discussion...

We prayed for one another and our churches! That might be the most important thing we did (as is our custom)!

We shared news from around the FGBC World and our Region and our Churches.
Here are a few newsy items:
  • Dec. 22nd @ Noon PST:  Barb Wooler Facilitating a Call on Syrian Refugee Situation:  You must email here to book a spot! only 4 left! bwooler@encompassworld.org
  • Be praying for Johnston Moore (Director Home Forever & Elder at Grace LB) and their family as his daughter Brandy has been missing for 3 weeks now.
  • Consider getting Christmas gift from Julie Schumacher and the Cambodian ministry Sak Saum
  • Register NOW for FOCUS Retreat (see below for FINANCIAL AID!)

Also here is the Powerpoint of the announcements that were made...and the questions/resources that guided our time. Dropbox Link 


Finally we learned a bit about Millenials and Generation iY
