Letting Go of Our Beloved Buildings?
Wednesday, October 25, 1:30-3pm ET / 12:30-2pm CT / 10:30am-12pm PT / 11:30am-1pm MT
Our buildings connect us to our history and are special and unique spaces that provide a home for our communities. But with these blessings come the challenges of maintaining older buildings and adapting them for today's needs. This is especially a challenge for congregations who are now smaller than when their buildings were built. What if the space we need to live our mission no longer matches the building we own? Could our building find a new calling? Learn more and register on our Letting Go Registration page.
Threats from Without, Care from Within
Saturday, October 21, 12-6pm ET / 11am-5pm CT / 9am-3pm PT / 10am-4pm MT
In 2023, an increasing number of our congregations have been targeted and threatened by extremist groups who do not like the way our congregations act for justice and equity. Though most threats do not lead to violence, these times call us to be prepared. This daylong online conference will begin with worship and inspiration, followed by workshops and panel discussions. We encourage teams from congregations to sign up and to participate in the conference on different screens to be able to attend different workshops.
