Part of the Cultivate Project of NWWA Synod of the ELCA
Join Facilitators and Practitioners of unique gatherings and organic forms of church, for a day of stories, experiences, and workshops to explore together how we can open God’s holy invitation even wider. There are so many ways to gather as faithful communities, whether it's outdoors, creating art, at the pub, or just eating around one big table. Why shouldn’t our gatherings reflect our uniqueness?
Let’s imagine how we can foster organic sacred spaces right in our own backyards. How can we create more inclusive gatherings for people to encounter God? How can we experiment with the gifts we have to meet the needs of those seeking the spirit in our own neighborhoods? What is sprouting up within you that is ready for germination? Come with ideas, come with questions, come to dream about what sacred spaces can be!
We’ll have an optional gathering the night before for practitioners to come, share a meal and find community in the sometimes siloed work on church experimentation. Scholarships are available so please reach out if cost is a barrier.
Register HERE (note: if registering a group of 3 or mroe, please use "GROUP" as the promo code - that way you can add all the attendees from the group individually and it will eliminate those individual costs and just charge the $100!)
