The Ellington Congregational Church invites the churches in the Tolland and Windham Associations to participate in a workshop on Stewardship led by Charlie Kuchenbrod, Executive Associate Conference Minister of the Connecticut Conference.
This will be an opportunity to share best practices and learn from each other. Some of the topics will include:
- he spiritual and theological foundations for fundraising,
- understanding and challenging church culture around financial matters,
- dividing responsibilities between clergy and lay leaders, and
- making a strong case for support.
The impact of this workshop will be multiplied if clergy and lay leaders of a congregation attend together.
