First We Belong: Children's and Youth Ministry Conference

Saturday, August, 27th, 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

For the first time in a generation our diocese is offering a day-long conference for everyone who is in ministry with children and youth; professionals and volunteers, both lay and clergy, are invited. The conference will take place Saturday, August 27th at St. Paul's Salinas.

FirstWeBelong2

Young people want to belong before they “believe." Traditionally their parents and elders teach young people to believe first, then behave . . . and then we allow them to belong. How can we turn this around, placing relationships first, so that we can connect with the younger generation in authentic and faithful ways?

Putting relationship-driven ministries in the context of a holistic model of sustainable and missional ministry called Holy Currencies, the Rev. Canon Eric Law will guide participants on a transformational journey to explore how to build our ministries through strengthening our internal relational networks and expanding our external network into the neighborhood community.

You will enjoy new connections with your ministry peers across the diocese and ideas that will impact all of your interactions with children and youth. To register Click HERE. It will take place in Salinas so if you’d like to carpool together please contact Mother Katherine.

Inter-Parish Adult Bible Workbench

Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon (on break during August)

Reading Between the Lines meets Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Wickham Rm. We believe in stories. Stories are how we make sense of our own experience and learn about the experience of others. We are surrounded by stories in conversations and through the media. The Bible is full of stories too. They speak to us of what is best and worst, hopeful and despairing, creative and destructive about human life and the experience of the sacred in its midst. Join us as we discover ourselves in the Bible Story.

Fee is $10/quarter for printing and curriculum subscription.
