Leadership Training May 13

Register Here

Saturday, May 13, 2017, is the date for some great leadership training sessions! These are open to the congregation and the community at large. There will be four ‘sessions’ – two in the morning and two in the afternoon – in Thomson Hall and the Chapel. Here’s the schedule:

10:00 am – 11:30 am
A. How to Protest – Part 1
How to work with national, state and local representatives and processes; What to know when you participate in a march, rally or protest; How to deal with people with whom you disagree; What else can we do?
B. The Path to Leadership
Ever wonder how we get our church leaders? How can you make that climb up the ladder to serve in the leadership? We’ll talk about the preliminary steps you can make to be better prepared for a leadership position.
There will also be a primer in how the church is governed. We’ll answer those questions you’ve had: “Who do I go to if I want to know X?”; “What’s up with this Program Council group?”; “What does the Finance Committee do that isn’t done by the Treasurer and the Disbursing Officer?”; and much more.

Lunch 11:30 – 12:30
Please feel free to stay and continue your discussions. Bring your lunch and we will provide drinks and desserts!

12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
A. How to Protest – Part 2

A continuation of the morning’s discussions
B. Transgender Relations: "Let’s Get Educated!”
Members of the transgender community will present a program that will help us to understand our transgender neighbors, what they need, and how we can help.
