Congregational Stewardship That Engages All
Saturday November 9th, 2019

Coordinated and hosted by the East Tennessee cluster of congregations.

Congregational leaders tend to describe their challenges and circumstances in terms of deficiencies - not enough volunteers, young people and families, diversity, money. Perhaps our approaches to stewardship inhibit us from seeing opportunities and resources that are all around us. This workshop will explore the Who, How, and Why of creating better stewardship programs, informed by our Unitarian Universalist Principles and values, our religious purpose, and our congregational visions.

Join us for this engaging workshop. Together we will:

*Explore values- and faith-aligned stewardship practices, including multicultural engagement and equity-based systems
*Consider practices of stewardship grounded in confidence that enough is available to us, and that all have gifts to contribute and yearning to make a difference
*Identify strategies for aligning congregational ministries and systems in support of new stewardship practices

This is a team-based workshop, as we will work on alignment around stewardship systems and leveraging our rich human
resources. We encourage, in addition to the stewardship committee members, that board members, religious professionals, finance, and membership folks attend together. In fact, if you have new staff or potential lay leaders this would be a great opportunity for them.
