Healthy Congregations Workshop 

Friday 2/17/17, 7-9:30pm and Saturday 2/18/17, 9am-4:30pm

Led by Bill Blank of the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center  

In many congregations today negative, reactive forces are allowed to set the agenda for the church.  This workshop uses Family Systems theory to teach ways to prevent this anxiety from becoming a toxic force in your congregation.  Come and learn how to shape and share healthier congregational life. 

The Healthy Congregations workshop is designed to equip leaders to respond to the presence or potential threat of anxiety in a congregational system in ways that prevent destructive conflict and help the church stay focused on its unique mission and purpose. 

This work is helpful for individuals and even more impactful for groups from the same church or organization so we are offering special pricing for groups of 3 or more from the same church who register together. 

This workshop is cosponsored by the Southwest Association, Michigan Conference of the United Church of Christ and Transformations Spirituality Center.

Register by 1/20/17 for $105 per person early registeration; $125 thereafter.

Groups of 3 or more from one parish (registering together):  $85 by 01/20/17; $105 thereafter.

Limited housing is available at an additional $65 per private room and breakfast; $45 each person for a double room and breakfast.

Please register by February 3. Payment due prior to arrival.
