Holy Cross Faith Memorial Church, Pawleys Island, hosts an INVITE-WELCOME-CONNECT ™ weekend event September 8-10. All adult parishioners are invited to participate. We are extending an invitation to clergy and lay leaders in our diocese.
Mary Parmer of Sewanee’s School of Theology and Beecken Center developed creative, concrete resources and tools to assist congregations in forming systematic, intentional evangelism, hospitality, and connection ministries.
FRIDAY EVENING At an informal supper with parish and diocesan leadership, Mary offers a short presentation describing the next day’s workshop.
SATURDAY WORKSHOP This workshop from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. includes hands-on training and creative idea generation using the Invite-Welcome-Connect checklists. Suggested implementation procedures for this important transformational work are offered throughout the day, and best practices from congregations around the country currently doing the work are discussed. Congregations will do the small group work for themselves, and there will be time for report outs from each group represented. (Morning Coffee and Noon Lunch are included.)
Who should attend? Clergy, Vestry and staff members, past and present ministry leaders, and anyone in the congregation who is interested in growing our congregation for Christ. New church members (in the last year or two) are especially invited.
SUNDAY MORNING Mary Parmer preaches and teaches at Holy Cross.
Cost: $20 per person includes supper, morning coffee, and a light lunch.
