North Georgia United Methodists are invited to Ã¢â‚¬Å“rethink churchÃ¢â‚¬Â at a training event August 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Peachtree Road UMC in Atlanta. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Rethink ChurchÃ¢â‚¬Â is the next phase of the denominationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s inviting and welcoming ministry. The training is co-sponsored by the North Georgia Annual Conference and United Methodist Communications.
Nationally, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Rethink ChurchÃ¢â‚¬Â advertising campaign launched May 5. A new Web site, www.10thousanddoors.org, showcases a number of ways the United Methodist Church is rethinking church and connecting people with opportunities to make the world a better place.
Choose from three different workshop tracks
Participants in the August 1 workshop will split into three different tracksÃ¢â‚¬â€Ã¢â‚¬ÂWelcome,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“ConnectÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“IdentifyÃ¢â‚¬ÂÃ¢â‚¬â€to focus on different pieces of the welcoming ministry.
Registering for this event
Churches are invited to bring a team or three of more and cover all three sessions, or individuals attending alone may choose ONE on the sessions that will prove most helpful to their congregation. The cost is only $40 per individual or church team. Lunch will be provided, and will be an additional cost of $10 per attendee. If you have difficulty registering, or have questions, please contact Tim McDaniel @ 678.533.1377.
This training is a continuation of North Georgia's commitment to Rethink Church. At Annual Conference in June, Larry Hollin, General Secretary of United Methodist Communication, addressed members and showed a Rethink Church ad spot. That afternoon Ken Sloan of the advertising agency that created the Rethink Church Campaign led an information session on Rethink Church.
