“Alive and Thrive: At Any Size!” in Bethel

May 6, 2023

The “Alive and Thrive: At Any Size!” workshops focus on church vitality for the 21st century, including the topics of:

  • Becoming a mission church: reaching out into the greater community
  • Engaging community partners for mission
  • “Right sizing” governance to prevent burn out as numbers in the pews decrease
  • Creative ways for pastors and lay leaders to work together
  • Reaching the unchurched and inviting them into the life of the church

Register and join us for this May 6th event in Bethel, ME either in-person or online! Marisa has presented these workshops many times as ACM in Penn Central Conference. All churches are invited because all of us are struggling with these questions, no matter our size.
