A delicious lunch was held in Bard Hall with attendees enjoying the great food and conversation. It proved to be a valuable networking opportunity between our far-flung congregations with many people meeting in person for the first time!
For the afternoon sessions we split into a group to listen to Anabel Kugel and Bonnie Bear discuss mental health and the church while the other group attended Nate Walker's interesting talk about creating online ministry. Each session ended with evaluations of the sessions and a strategy session for action items to move forward. The day concluded with a joyful worship service.
Thank you to all of the board members, volunteers and staff who helped create this event. Stay tuned for updates on the initiatives that were created - as well as their outcomes!
