On Saturday, October 2, The Southern New England Conference of the UCC (SNEUCC) presents another Super Saturday—a leadership development and networking event for lay leaders and clergy, sponsored by the Southern New England Conference. Participants can choose from over 50 workshops covering a variety of topics related to church life, sign up for networking lunches, register for one-on-one professional coaching sessions, browse the virtual marketplace, and celebrate in worship.
With the uncertainty of Covid, the October Super Saturday will again be virtual. Our priority is the safety of our attendees.
The theme of our October Super Saturday, featuring Dr. Monica Coleman is “Building on God’s Promises: A Time of Personal Renewal.” Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.—3 John 1:2 (NIV)
This October, we will be offering some 1 Hour workshops and a few 1 Hour Midday workshops in addition to our standard 1.5 hours and extended workshops for those who want to be busy all day. Sign up for as many or as few as you like. View the New Schedule.
