Missional Church Discussion
Zion Lutheran Church has joined with another congregation of Springfield Township, St John Petersburg and in exploring our common ministry together. We are praying and working with strategic planning model listening for the direction that God has already been at work in our community and congregation and now calls us to partner with God as part of our mission. This process calls for us to use data as well as the prayer of discernment to discover places that we find hope, places of God's love, and places that God is already present. Presently we are offering a common youth ministry under pastor Erin's leadership.
What Does a faith community that forms people in disciples and apostles of Jesus look like?
We at Zion congregation still struggle with this question as we we seek faith practices that assist us in becoming disciples (learners of the Jesus way) and those who willingly share their faith story with others as we have come to see and experience our growing relationship with God.
Join us on the Journey to God
Zion as it works through the process to become a Missional Church is developing an emphasis that focuses on inviting people into a relationship with God in Jesus. We are trying to create language to describe what it means to be a person on the journey to God with others using a Lutheran Christian perspective. We want to emphasize our experiences in God. We have created a document called "Zion Lutheran's Journey".
