The Gathering takes place this Saturday, March 17th, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Join with clergy and laity to learn together and share what you have learned back home after this one-day, three-workshop event! This is an opportunity to share what’s working at your church and learn from other parishes. These workshops are designed to be interactive and help us strengthen our diocese and realize the diocesan strategic plan. The conference starts at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and snacks. At at 10:00 a.m. you may choose to attend one of three workshops:

A) Simply Singing with the Rev. Ernest Cockrell and friends

B) The Challenges of Change with the Rev. John Buenz and friends

C) Leading by Way of God’s Vision with the Revs. Rick Matters and Roger Barney and friends

There will be a break from noon to 1:00 p.m. for lunch and conversations, then at 1:00 p.m. you will rejoin your group. We will close together at 3:00 p.m.

One of the objectives of the Gathering is to create an environment that encourages people to reach out to others in our diocese. The Order of the Laity needs to have an opportunity to meet others and to learn from each other. If at all possible, please register online or print the flyer and fax it to Mission House at 831-394-4465. We look forward to a creative and fun time learning from one another!
