October 17, 2015: Central Association Fall Meeting

Posted on : Oct 1st, 2015 | By | Category: Special Events

What is more feared than a root canal?

Worse than the “prep” for a colonoscopy?


Yup, you guessed it: Progressive Christians learning to talk about God!

We progressive Christians are great at saying who we are not;

but who are we and how do we tell our story?

That will be the focus of our Fall (and Spring) meeting(s).

Four of our 20/30 clergy: Revs. Susie Bjork, John Forrest Douglas, Katy Hyman and Andy Schwiebert will be sharing their faith stories

as they lead us in worship; and

we’ll all have a chance to learn how to tell our faith-story.
