YOU ASKED. WE ARE RESPONDING
Save the date! We are hosting lunch and a facilitated conversation among congregational board officers, ministers, and other congregational leaders.

Our focus: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISCIPLES CONGREGATIONS IN THE NEXT DECADE

We will meet at the Merriam Christian Church, at 12 pm, February 15th. We will have a baked potato bar and soup lunch.

Although there will be a brief presentation of information, the primary focus is to bring together Greater Kansas City Disciples who care about the future of their congregations to share what's working, what's needed, and to identify potential congregational partnerships around promising missions and ministries.

Using a World Cafe model, every participant will have opportunity to speak and to listen and a report will be compiled and posted the following week to share with your leadership team.

As is customary among Disciples, we will share communion before we dismiss at 3 pm.

There is no charge for the event: these are your Disciples Mission Fund and other donations at work for you.

We do ask that you RSVP:
