FAITH FORWARD IS A PATH FOR ENGAGEMENT
How do you prepare your members to represent your congregation as leaders within and beyond your walls?
Faith Forward is designed as a path for engagement, orienting and nurturing people in our congregations into how to do good, healthy, spiritually grounded church, and then to engage in the world from a deep, faithful place. Participants in the path deepen in spirit and grow their UU identity, so that when they step into roles of service, leadership, and activism they can do so firmly rooted in Unitarian Universalism.
One important component of Faith Forward is helping congregants discern how they can best serve, lead, and use their gifts to build beloved community. Along with discernment, you can offer them steps to take action e.g. sign up to be a greeter once a month, or check out this service opportunity with a church group two weeks from now. It's important to offer clear and immediate opportunities to engage, and to guide them toward what aligns with their needs and interests.
Faith Forward prepares congregants to live out their faith in the wider community.
