A Special Welcome to Envision – Engage – Energize
Oct. 13 – 15
Does your congregation need to re-energize itself? Are you looking for ways to refresh your purpose, to position yourself for growth, to become better known in your communities, and to attract a young and energetic demographic?
Join us in Calgary at the 2017 Western Region Fall Gathering to hear strategies for attaining these goals, to take part in an invigorating session on Truth, Healing and Reconciliation, or to enjoy an engaging arts and music stream.
Just a few items to whet your appetites!
This full- day Stream will also be open to the general public along with a welcome for all participants to share in a Blanket Exercise at the end of our day.
