The Church Council of Greater Seattle invites you to the Weaving Our Strengths Conference on Saturday, October 22 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Seattle First Baptist Church, 1111 Harvard Ave., Seattle 98122.
Weaving Our Strengths is a day-long conference of fellowship, inspiration, and skill-building to strengthen local churches’ efforts for the common good. Connect across denominations, share best practices, foster spiritually-grounded action, and bring insights and opportunities back to your home congregation.
The day includes worship, two sessions of workshops, a resource fair, a celebration of the Gertrude Apel Pioneering Spirit Awardees, and an opportunity to weave together what we’ve learned. Workshop themes include: Interfaith Dialogue & Approach to Scripture; Storytelling for Community Action; Immigrant & Refugee Accompaniment; “Habits of the Heart” for Healthy Conversations; Mental Illness & The Church; Racial Justice – through Scripture & in Congregations; Conflict & Reconciliation in Colombia; Church in the Neighborhood; Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery; and Creative Worship. Bring a group to take advantage of more workshop offerings, build shared capacity, and help implement new learnings.
Last year, over 200 people from 16 faith traditions, and at least 60 congregations gathered for this transformative day of learning, sharing, and fellowship. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from each other, share information, and network.
