    Dreaming Our Future St. Mary's Episcopal Church Introduction to the Process In 2019, St. Mary’s began a process of discerning our future that we are calling Dreaming Our Future. It’s not a new endeavor, really; every ten years or so, the vestry and congregation have embarked together on a period of reflection and discernment about who we are as a faith community, and where God is calling us. Stepping back from our usual flow of work and ministry gives us an opportunity to reflect on our history as the people of God in this place. We recall who we have been throughout the many phases of our seven decades as St. Mary’s. We name what has sustained us, kept us strong and vital, and where our ministries in the world have shown the love of Christ to the wider community of Anchorage, and even to the wider world.

We bring our vision of the possible into the present. We may choose to pursue a program, or a project that involves building, or to stay the course with our current flourishing ministries.
