Is your church poised to start a new worship service? What does it take to do so successfully and reach new people for Christ?
On Friday evening and Saturday, May 16-17 (Friday, 6:00-8:30 p.m.; Saturday, 8:30-5:00), Mike Crawford, IGRC Coordinator of Congregational Development, will lead a workshop entitled "Launching a New Worship Service" at 1st UMC, 302 Broadway St., Lincoln.
This workshop is for churches which have already made the commitment to start a new service, leading them to develop the strategy and action steps needed to make it a reality. It is most effective if a team of at least 3-4 people attend together.
Topics to be covered include Fatal Mistakes Many Churches Make, Focus on Your Mission Field, Building a Launch Team, and Reaching, Welcoming, and Connecting New People. As a part of the workshop, each church team will develop an implementation timeline.
The registration fee is $15 per person (to cover the cost of Saturday lunch and snacks).
Participants must register by May 9 by emailing 1st UMC, Lincoln, at
