Weaving Our Strengths
October 3, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Church Council of Greater Seattle invites you to Weaving Our Strengths on Saturday, October 3 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at University Congregational UCC, 4515 16th Ave. NE, Seattle.
Weaving Our Strengths is a day-long conference of fellowship, inspiration, and skill-building to strengthen local churches’ efforts for the common good.
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 through small group conversations. Workshop themes include worship, church management, tending the spirit, and social justice, including racial reconciliation, environment, homelessness, and human trafficking awareness.
Last year, over 200 people from 15 faith traditions, and at least 57 congregations gathered for this transformative day of learning, sharing, and fellowship. We hope you and your community can be a part of it!

Group Rates are $175 for up to 5 people; and $275 for 6 – 10 people.
