WHOLE CONGREGATION FORMATION
There are multiple ways to learn and all kinds of methods. Pastor Salying has launched a Whole Congregation Formation Program, that links Godly Play during the sermon to a corresponding cross-generation educational forum after the service. Each month will emphasize a different aspect of congregational formation.
Last month’s program focused on Baptism, utilizing two teaching techniques aimed at engaging participants in the learning experience utilizing our heads and hearts. For example, we were given time to pause and ponder, to wonder, and to react both emotionally and intellectually throughout the lesson. In this manner, learning and congregational formation could be approached holistically.
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS SUNDAY
We will once again be utilizing Godly Play during sermon time followed by an Old Testament Forum & Lunch in Cowans Hall after the 10:30 am service.
The experience will be interactive, engaging the senses with auditory, visual and kinetic or tactile elements that are both interesting and fun for parishioners of all ages.
Enjoy a simple lunch of “Biblical” (Mediterranean) food to highlight our special time of learning together in community.
