Cascadia All-District Fall Gathering
On Saturday, September 22nd the Cascadia District will hold an event in Salem for all clergy and members of our district churches!
In the morning there will be a time for clergy to gather, the all-district fall kick-off colloquy.
At noon there will be a catered lunch for lay and clergy with a program by the Cascadia District Church Extension Society (CDCES). The Extension Society is an example of our connectional system, with churches supporting other churches through the Extension Society Asking (has your church paid theirs? Check with your treasurer!) and the legacy of resources from closed churches. The CDCES gives loans for building improvements and grants for new ministry. Check it out by clicking here! CDCES is also the source for the New Places for New People micro-grants given to each Cascadia church and ministry setting. If you haven't heard about that yet, ask your lay member to Annual Conference!
In the afternoon there will be an event for clergy and laity on engaging in dynamic ministry in our communities!
More details coming soon!
