As we have walked with you and listened to you during the past year, we have heard that living with a posture of hope is not always easy. We have heard a yearning for new insights and new eyesight, rooted in the One who is Life.

In partnership with our 300th anniversary year, the Synod of the Trinity has claimed the theme of “Revealing Hope” to be one of our emphases. In light of that, we invite you to join us this spring for our annual Regional Connection for Partnership and Networking, designed this year to help us refocus a life-walk that reflects hope and resurrection, and meet others with whom we can continue the journey. The following morning targeted conversation groups will be offered around these topics:

Targeted Conversation Topics

Afternoon Worship and Conversation

Remembering What Will Come: Embracing Our Identity as God’s People in an Uncertain Age
In an increasingly polarized and turbulent age, how can the family of God so center itself as to limit being swept up in the fray? Through worship and conversation, we’ll seek insight into becoming those who understand the times and know what should be done.
