GROUPS AS VITAL PARTS OF CONGREGATIONS
Saturday, May 3, 2014 9:30am-3:00pm

Congregations are invited to bring teams from various committees and parts of the congregation. Many congregations find that Small Group Ministry enhances the life of the congregation, including committees and groups. This workshop explores the collaboration of the groups within the congregation and Small Group Ministry. There will be handouts for participants and a resource packet for each congregation.

Facilitator:  Rev. Helen Zidowecki, a retired UU minister, has been involved with UU Small Group Ministry for over 15 years, from congregation to the UU Small Group Ministry Network.
