Start-Up Weekend: Friday & Saturday, Sept. 15-16

Mark your calendar!  Bring a dish!  Celebrate!

To help a congregation and its new minister get off to a solid beginning together, our MidAmerica Region offers to facilitate a “Start-Up Weekend” program.

David Pyle (the Regional Lead and a Congregational Life Consultant with the MidAmerica Regional staff) will be with us on Friday evening, September 15th, and all day Saturday, September 16th.

Friday evening, David will be leading an all-congregation workshop. All members and friends are cordially invited to come and participate.

The Saturday events are intended to be more focused. There’s a morning workshop for all leaders (“anyone who identifies themselves as a leader in the congregation,” as David put it), and an afternoon workshop is for just the board and minister.
