Pacifica Synod Boundary Workshop
Wednesday, October 20, 2021
St. John’s Lutheran Church, Palm Desert
1:00 – 5:00 p.m. PDT
Rostered Leader Boundary Workshops have been “on hold” during the past year of healthy distancing and minimal gatherings in the era of COVID-19. We’ve done this to help and support one another during the pandemic. Another way that we support one another is to encourage and promote responsible boundaries.
Why Should I attend a Boundary Workshop?
Synod policy requires rostered ministers to participate in a Basic Boundary Workshop every three years that emphasizes the church’s expectations for their professional ethics, finances, social media use and prevention of sexual misconduct. The synod considers racial justice a necessary part of healthy boundaries. Please see the opportunity to participate in the “Undoing Racism” Training Workshop offered by the Pacifica Synod Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Work Group. We regret that these opportunities overlap; however, you must be present for the entire boundary workshop to receive your certificate of completion.
Registration will close on October 8th or when we reach a threshold of 25 participants. The cost for the workshop is $20.00 which includes lunch. If you have questions, including as to when you last participated in a boundary workshop please contact Rev. Terry Tuvey Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Carol Youngman at email@example.com. As we will be working in small groups, please be aware of caring for your own health if you are in high risk category and bring a mask. We will be observing COVID-19 protocols. We plan to offer our next workshop in February or March of 2022.
