The Times They Are a Changin' Workshop 

We live in a rapidly changing culture, and the local church can lag behind, caught in outdated and outmoded paradigms. This workshop, presented by Rev. Dr. Ivy Beckwith and sponsored by The Florida Conference of the UCC, will explore the generational characteristics and needs of today's young adults, teens and children, and ways today's church can live into their lives. Participants will explore paradigm-busting tactics for Sunday school, confirmation, youth ministry and adult education.

Rev. Dr. Beckwith is the faith formation team leader for the national setting of the United Church of Christ. She has served churches in the East and Midwest in the area of Christian formation and is the author of several books on the subject.

This is an incredible opportunity for all youth ministers, youth leaders, Christian education/faith formation leaders, local pastors and anyone who works with youth and children.

The event will be held at Pass-A-Grille Beach Community Church, UCC, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3. Cost is $40 and covers lunch and materials. The event will also be live streamed for a $10 fee for those who might like to come but are not able to join us in person.

Participants who plan to arrive Friday evening are welcome to join us for an informal gathering and fellowship with Ivy. Hotel rooms are available at Sirata Beach Resort.

As an added bonus, any adult who attends this event will be able to attend the Walk on the Water Youth Event in January at no additional cost.  For more information, contact Jeanne Haemmelmann, Gulf Coast Regional Youth Minister at jeanneh@uccfla.org

The registration deadline is Sept. 28, so Register NOW!
