Feeding America, Being Grace

It’s supposed to be warm outside!  Come enjoy the sunshine on Thursday, April 14th from 5:00-7:00 (4:00 if you are working in the kitchen!) for our monthly Feeding America ministry. We will welcome over 250 folks to Grace, share a warm meal, and distribute over 8000 lbs of food along with laundry detergent and toilet paper.  If you can help, come.  If you need food, come.  All are welcome!


Bishop’s Workshops on Building Relationships

What are your relationships like? Are they mutual? Are they life-giving to you and to others? These are the questions we will be asking in our 2016 Bishop’s Workshops in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.

In this conversation, we will also focus on vulnerability, and how we must be vulnerable to reap the fruits of faith and trust. This applies to ourselves as well as to our congregations. Vulnerability and humility are the keys to our most important relationships inside and outside the church. (Watch this brilliant video by Brene Brown on vulnerability).

After the bishop’s presentation, lunch will be provided. Workshops will be offered in the afternoon.

Workshops are subject to change, and workshop facilitators are to be announced. They include the following possible topics:

 

Blue Arrow LeftDeveloping a Rule of Life
Blue Arrow Left Spirituality of Good Stewardship
Blue Arrow Left Lay Worship Leadership in Small Churches
Blue Arrow Left Family Formation at Home

 Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. with welcome & introductions beginning promptly at 10:00. We will conclude at 3:00 p.m.

We will come together in closing to discuss the day and pray. All are welcome. If you have questions or concerns about this event, contact the diocesan office at (269) 381-2710.
