For some time, we have talked about visiting ministry throughout the Inland West Mission Center.  With that in mind we have contacted several people who are willing to provide ministry and have developed a schedule.  This is our first time working on a coordinated visiting ministry schedule. As we begin this process our goal is for each congregation to have someone in their congregation once a quarter.  Each quarter the schedule will be posted here.

VISTING MINISTRY:

Community of Christ does not proselytize faithful, active Latter-day Saints.  Instead, we seek fellowship and dialogue with all members of the Restoration.

But, in the model of our Master, we do invite all who are heavy laden, disenchanted, frustrated, or lost to come and see what God can do for their lives in Community of Christ.  If you are a disaffected Latter-day Saint, we invite you to consider the Restoration anew. Before you leave the Restoration, or Christianity altogether, please consider our offer of sanctuary.  We invite you to experience the peace of God in Community of Christ.

Community of Christ's field-based LCM program piloted its first group of sessions in the fall of 2012.  Congregation leaders throughout the US have made the commitment to attend the seven weekend sessions over the course of three years and incorporate the practices into their congregations. Through the workshops and the monthly meetings this group is learning the importance of functioning as a team, sharing in missional practices, and discussing and discerning essential questions.  Contrary to everything we've heard before the key to leadership is to "slow down."  The goal is not to quickly check off as many things on our to-do list as possible, but to focus on loving God, loving one another, and loving our neighbors first.  This exciting new program is helping to develop a new understanding of what it means to be missional and relational with each other as well as extend invitation, hospitality and healing to those in our neighborhoods and beyond.
