Congregational Vitality

The Congregational Vitality Committee needs your help.  

We all want to address the called General Conference and our way forward as United Methodists.  We want and need to pray.  We may or may not want to talk about it, depending on our (and our congregations') particular setting.  There are anxiety levels ranging from low heart rates to perilously high blood pressures around the gathering in St. Louis.

And yet, we all worship.  There are several blog pages, linked below, where you can share original prayers, litanies, affirmations, or anything else that will help other churches put together worship services over the next few Sundays.  Notice is short, but we wanted to provide an outlet and resource as we walk the road of these next few weeks together.  Thank you for your prayerful submissions. Please indicate whether your submission is best used before, during, or after GC2019.


Vital Congregations

The Mountain Sky Area strives to equip local congregations for vital ministry in their communities.  The opportunities for each congregation are unique as are the challenges.  We aim to provide tools that offer local congregations the insights they need to move forward.  You can learn about some of those tools here.

New Church Development

The Mountain Sky Area is committed to starting new faith communities, large and small. As the populations in our area change one way we respond is creating new churches and faith communities where new opportunities are present. Ranging from small, lay lead, house churches, to more traditional clergy lead projects, we aim to create a diverse economy of churches that will meet the needs of the great cultural, ethnic, and age diversity present throughout our area.
