Fresh Expressions for Pastors and Churches is a workshop geared toward churches who seek to create new places for new people. We need to move beyond attractional models for doing church. Join us to be challenged to create something new that IS “church” in your community. This workshop will provide both creative and practical ways to get outside the four walls to be the church where the people are!  Rev. Dr. Kathleen Kind will share about Fresh Expressions on May 6, 2023, Pleasant Gap 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.  A small fee of $5 per person or $20 for a team of five will be asked to help with the luncheon.  Please email [email protected] for your registration by April 24 –include any dietary restrictions. Please send your payment to the State College District Ministerium at 1200 Haymaker Rd, State College, PA 16801. Questions? See Pastor Theresa.
