WALKING TOGETHER, MAY 30
Perhaps you have attended Walking Together, the annual springtime event aimed at helping congregational leaders learn, share and grow. The feedback we receive from this day of resource sharing tells us that it’s worth doing again and again--and again!
This year’s event (the sixth annual) will be held Saturday, May 30 at UW-Eau Claire and it promises to be one of the best ever. With over 40 different workshops to choose from, you will have lots of opportunities to hear the latest thinking on change, generosity, youth and young adults, healthy congregations, Islam, spiritual gifts and more.
So get a group together--it only costs $15/person and that includes lunch. To encourage youth to attend, anyone under the age of 18, will be admitted free. You’ll be glad you did!
