Salt & Light Story

Listening to God, your community, and your congregation is crucial as your congregation walks toward a liminal space. Listening, however, is not enough; your congregation needs to discover its God-given, hope-filled next chapter.

Salt and Light Story guides your congregation in this critical moment. It does so through a thoughtful process that engages everyone, seeks the Spirit's leading, and focuses on the next chapter of your congregation's story.


As your congregation walks towards a liminal space, Vibrant Congregations invites you to walk wisely by engaging Salt and Light Story. 

  • Everyone Engaged
    SLStory listens to the voice of the congregation and local community. All congregational members are invited to engage in the process of imagining where the Spirit is leading the congregation

  • Spirit Led
    Through a time of prayer, scripture and listening the congregation discerns the leading of the Spirit together.

  • Story Focused
    The congregation writes its story of being salt and light in word, scripture, art, and song. This story is told and retold in the congregation shaping its life together.
