Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones is a series of mini-courses for leaders who shape faith and who want to energize or refresh their ministry. These workshops explore faith formation topics, best practices and creative ideas in the many areas of effective formation for children, youth and adults. Whether you are a pastor, director, superintendent, youth leader or Christian education committee or board member, these workshops are for you!

Come to the table and dine, network and learn!                                Discover exciting practices to deepen discipleship.

Stepping Stones is co-sponsored by The Connecticut Conference United Church of Christ and CAUCE (The CT Association of United Church Educators). This year's series will take place in various regions throughout our state. Those who have participated in previous Stepping Stones workshops have expressed an appreciation for these opportunities to network and for the warm fellowship too!
