Stewardship Kaleidoscope is moving online

Make me know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long. – Psalm 25: 4-5

These are extraordinary times and while we can’t “do church” the way we are used to the needs of our communities and our call to be stewards of God’s kingdom has not been put on hold.

This year Kaleidoscope will offer learning over three weeks in the fall to help you respond to

the needs of your community, adapt to change, and think about how to engage as church in new ways. We hope you can join us on three consecutive Tuesdays: September 22, September 29, and October 6 at 11:30am eastern/8:30am pacific.

On September 22nd hear from Eric Barreto of Princeton Theological Seminary on the Acts of the Apostles in the 21st century – imagination, vision, and creativity in responding to our call;

September 29th we will learn with consultant Bonnie Ives Marden about the ways in which

faith shapes our financial health, and get practical tools for church financial management;

October 6th Rev. Bruce Reyes-Chow will provide perspectives on engaging congregations

across generations, cultures, and ethnicity to imagine building the church for forward thinking funding and functioning.

Registration will be open soon. See more at StewardshipKaleidoscope.org
