Healthy Congregations Workshop

This special opportunity, led by the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center, will be held at Transformations Spirituality Center in Kalamazoo on Friday evening, Feb 17, and Saturday, Feb 18. This is a powerful and practical program that will strengthen any church. In many congregations today negative, reactive forces are allowed to set the agenda for the church. This workshop uses Family Systems Theory to teach ways to prevent this anxiety from becoming a toxic force in your congregation. Come and learn how to shape and share healthier congregational life! This workshop is cosponsored by the Southwest Association, Michigan Conference of the United Church of Christ and Transformations Spirituality Center.

See or call 269.381.6290 x327 for additional information or to register. Registration is $105 when received by January 20, $125 thereafter. Groups of 3 or more from one church (registering and paying together): $85 early; $105 thereafter.

To make this important opportunity more accessible to our churches, the Southwest Association will reimburse up to $85 per person (the early group registration rate) for up to 4 people plus the pastor of any of our member churches.
