COPA Training 9/13
Join others from across the county for COPA’s Congregational Development Training
The capacity to walk side-by-side with people in my congregation and in the community to fix what's broken is one of the best parts of being a member of Peace. One of the great traditions of the UCC is the concept of the town hall-style meeting where people from all segments of the community come together to listen, discern, and act together.
The COPA core team (our group of Peace members which takes leadership in COPA planning and organizing) is growing! And we are excited about the buzz that was generated by our 20th Anniversary Convention on May 20th.
To continue to amplify our regional efforts, we are offering a series of three evenings of training in Congregational Development (also referred to as Institutional Development since not all COPA members are faith-based). You'll get to meet people from other institutions across Santa Cruz County, learn about strategies to develop our membership, and find common interests we wish to work together on.
We've planned a sequence of three consecutive Wednesdays, all from 6:30 to 8 p.m. They are meant to build upon each other, but you don't need to attend all three. The first one was last Wednesday.
Please see the attached flier.
The next one will be Wednesday, September 20th at Resurrection Catholic Community in Aptos.
The final will be held at Peace on September 27 in the upper room of the CE building.
Please invite a friend, and please RSVP! (Please see the attached flyer for info on the 1st training. More info on the 2nd and 3rd trainings will follow.)
