May 30, 2020 - "Path to Unity"
On May 30 Leaders of the United Proclamation of the Gospel Parish and St. John's Windish Lutheran Church met to explore the path to uniting our communities of faith. From the UPG side this action was based on the December 2019 vote at Congregation Meetings to enter into a Parish Agreement. Here is an excerpt from the cover letter announcing this vote:
If a "Yes" vote is cast in this process, the voter is sharing her/his desire to continue
in our current arrangement with an understanding that the leadership of the UPG will be guided by the visioning report (dated Feb. 12, 2019). This report expressed a desire, at some point in the future, to create a single congregation.
The people of the United Proclamation of the Gospel Parish voted 133 in favor of moving forward with only 4 opposition votes.
You can read the minutes of this retreat here. We will need many members to help in the planning process. Please consider helping according to your interests when the call comes.
