This informal gathering of faith formation leaders from across the United Church of Christ (and beyond) happens once a month, introducing you and your church to a variety of resources and ideas through some dynamic and wonderful presenters!
Here’s a short sample of our recent “forum” with Psalmist and hymn writer Richard Bruxvoort Culligan discussing the the impact music has on our faith, theology and our life. (Full recordings are all listed a little farther down on the page.)
When: Second Tuesday of each month. 11 a.m. – noon Eastern time except during the summer months of June, July and August. (Recordings of the sessions are made available later.)
Where: At your own desk through the magic of videoconferencing
Sign up: For monthly reminders and the links by emailing Lisa Hart, Wisconsin Associate Conference Minister for Youth Faith Formation.
In partnership with the Wisconsin Conference UCC, we are spreading the reach of their free monthly video conference to share ideas and resources to inspire the transformation of your faith formation ministry. Go to our Events or our Holy Experiments Facebook page for more details. Link to resources mentioned in these online gatherings can also be found on our Holy Experiments Pinterest page.
