Growth & Vitality for Small Congregations with Tandi Rogers- Tuesday Oct 16, 7-8 pm PST
For Leaders of Small Congregations
Tandi will share about small congregations who make a big impact, UUA resources specifically for congregations just your size, ideas for you to build on what you already do well and joyfully and ‘going deeper’ questions to bring back to your communities.
Beloved Community Series: Congregational-Based Justice Ministry with Rev. Deborah Holder & Meck Groot- Thursday Oct 18, 7-8:30 pm PST
For Ministers, Boards, Religious Educators, Congregational Leaders & Members
Do the social change efforts in your congregation tend to be scattershot, depleting or marginal to congregational life? Participants will explore current realities in their congregations and consider the transformative power of engaging social change as ministry and Beloved Community as radical practice.
Our sessions begin with an introduction to this concept and an invitation to consider a framework for understanding justice work as ministry at the heart of congregational life.
Post a flyer of the Beloved Community series at your congregation.
Continuing the Welcoming Congregation Journey Series: Revitalizing the Welcome with Alex Kapitan- Thursday Oct 25, 7-8:15 pm PST
For All Members, Friends, Leadership & Welcoming Congregation Committee
We all like to think that we attend a Welcoming Congregation, regardless of whether it is recognized by the UUA as such or not. But what does it really mean to be a Welcoming Congregation? This engaging webinar will provide a broad vision of what a 21st-century Welcoming Congregation can be, offer concrete resources to deepen your congregation’s inclusion, and leave you energized for the vital, life-affirming work that makes Unitarian Universalism a beacon for our times.
Post a flyer of Continuing the Welcoming Congregation Journey series at your congregation.
