Look around your congregation – who isn’t there? Who is missing during worship time? Men? Young parents? People with mobility issues? LGBT community?
Is there diversity among those who are sitting in the pews? If not, what can we do about that?
Gone are the days when a faith community could simply open its doors and expect people to come in. Who is missing from our congregations? How do we reach out to them? How do we meet them where they are? By listening to one another’s stories and faith journeys and asking the question, “What’s it like to be you?” we can engage more people in the life of our congregations. Join the Rev. Dr. Sue Foster to discover ways to open our hearts to all of God’s people.
The fee for this three-hour workshop is $25. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
NOTE: Please park in the main lot next to the white building at 77 Sherman St. Lorraine Street is just across from the driveway entrance, and the Budd Interfaith Building is a short walk away.
