Informational Meeting – Converging Paths, Disciple Bands? Want to know more about small groups from our new Minister of Lay Ministries? – Rev. Bruce Van Blair will be facilitating an informational meeting in the Chapel Sunday, March 9, at 2:00 p.m. This is a one-time organizational / invitational meeting to talk about and answer questions about our new “CONVERGING PATHS” Ministry—the thing between Bangor (The BTS Center), The New Church (that Bruce pastors), and Countryside. Bruce will explain what he can of this new ministry, and invite all interested parties to come help—by getting into various Disciple Bands that are forming for this purpose. Come—and get into a Disciple Band or just listen, there is no commitment required. Getting in is easy. If you find it as important and fulfilling as many others do, it may not be as easy to get out again. But wouldn’t that be wonderful?

Nobody really believes she’s an ordained pastor in the ELCA. Maybe it’s the sleeve tattoos or the fact that she swears like a truck driver. Either way…she’s fine with it.
