With temperatures cooling down and the program year heating up, mainestewards is back with a variety of resources and ideas for clergy and lay leaders!
Check out the fall line-up of webinars offered (free!) by the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF)—there are a number of new titles offered for the first time, with literally something for everyone! The full schedule, along with registration, is available here.
On Saturday, September 27, I will host a live webinar from 10:00 a.m. until noon. This is a chance for us to connect; talk about how the ideas that emerge in the ECF webinars might be adapted to our specific congregations; look together at some new tools that are emerging from other denominations; and learn from one another’s challenges and successes. To register, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will then send you an invitation with sign-in instructions for the live session.
Walking the Way is a six-part, lectionary-based resource published by TENS: The Episcopal Network for Stewardship. This year’s edition features two bonus pieces for the Feast of St. Francis and All Saints Sunday. Because Maine is a Diocesan Member of TENS, these materials are available (free!) to congregations. For more information on this very flexible resource, visit www.mainestewards.com.
“Like” mainestewards on Facebook and you will become part of Maine’s stewardship community, sharing thoughts and ideas and receiving emerging resources in real time.
Questions? Thoughts? Ideas? I would love to hear from you! Please write to me any time at email@example.com. I am always interested in hearing how mainestewards can be a useful resource for congregations of all shapes and sizes, in all parts of Maine.
