Presented in partnership with the

Join us this Fall to learn from Sarah Bentley Allred about "worship for ALL AGES."  We will learn, talk, dream, and wonder about the how, why, and what of intergenerational worship. Topics including learning from soft space gone wrong, reimagining intergenerational ministry, and preparing worship that engages and equally values ALL AGES. We will come together to build community, glean wisdom from our speaker and from each other, and leave energized for the year of ministry ahead. This event is open to all volunteers, educators, seminary students and pastors. *This will be a hybrid event with an online attendance option.
