CCD in July
In July, Church of the Redeemer send a team of clergy, staff, and lay leadership to The College for Congregational Development (CCD). This is the second team to attend (the first team was in 2018 and 2019). CCD aims to equip congregational leadership with the knowledge, skills and practices needed to develop their congregations into healthy, sustainable congregations grounded in a robust identity that is rooted in an Anglican/Episcopal ethos and spirituality.
The team included: John Calhoun, Celtic Guild and Creation Care Chair; Tym House, Minister for Youth and Young Adults; Nancy Schwartz, Director of Operations; the Rev. Melanie W. J. Slane, Associate for Mission; and Beth Weinewuth, Junior Warden. Their second week of intensive sessions will occur next summer.
The team thanks you for your prayers while they were away and looks forward to sharing their projects for the coming year with you all. The first one involves an emphasis on storytelling/storysharing. Watch for more information as the program year begins in September.
