Vibrant Together – These two words describe the life of the Presbytery of Tropical Florida. Empowering Congregations to be Vibrant Christ-Centered Community, the Presbytery claims its mission with the following statement adopted in 2018:
The Presbytery of Tropical Florida engages, equips, and encourages vibrant Christ-centered communities to build relationships, have spiritual depth, and be missional. Through leadership development, disciple making, vital worship, reconciliation, and clarity of identity we are Vibrant Together.
At the February Assembly, GPSC Bultena presented the topic of Reconciliation as the fifth component of the Vibrant Together topics. He talked about the theology of Reconciliation based on the Confession of 1967, including: God’s work through Jesus Christ, the sin of humanity, and the New Life. He went on to talk of the Ministry of Reconciliation and how it works in the mission of the church. He also announced that there will be a five-week Congregational Lenten Study that can be used during Lent or after Easter, as each congregation chooses.
