On Earth As It Is in Heaven
More than 200 Disciples from 31 of the 47 churches in the Central Rocky Mountain Region gathered at First Christian Church in Colorado Springs on May 13-14 for Spring Feast 2016. With four of the Region’s five states represented (all but New Mexico), all who attended enjoyed fellowship, worship, and education.
Spring Feast began with 60 ministers attending the Clergy Convocation, hosted by Village Christian Church in Colorado Springs. Interim pastor Phillip Hayes welcomed the group, and volunteers from the church provided hospitality through both their presence and the wonderful breakfast and lunch.
Nadia Bolz-Weber, best selling author and founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado, challenged and inspired the Assembly with her sermon during the opening worship service on Friday and her workshop and Q&A session on Saturday.
During the business session on Saturday, attendees elected the 2016-2018 officers of the Regional Board. Prior to electing officers, the Assembly approved a provisional office of Moderator Elect. The districts also caucused briefly to elect the District Representatives to the Regional Board for 2016-2018.
The Program Book for Spring Feast also included the following reports:
