Join me for this conversation about making the small church more effective
The Effective Small Church
On May 6 at 7 p.m., Bishop Jim Hazelwood will be joined by pastors Anne Deneen (St. Paul - Gloucester, Mass.; right) and Julie Reuning-Scherer (Our Savior's - Newington, Conn.) for a webinar called "The Effective Small Church in New England."
Bishop Hazelwood and Pastors Deneen and Reuning-Scherer will talk about what makes a small congregation (defined as one that worships 70 or fewer people each Sunday) a powerful one, using examples from their experiences. The discussion will include:
- The unique aspects of being a small church
- The challenges and opportunities a small church faces
- Financing a small church and its ministries
- Governance in a small church
- Pastoral care
- Getting more people involved
