Churches run on volunteer power… but current conditions make volunteering harder. What can the UCC spaces do to support the essential role of volunteers? What do volunteers do in the wider church?
This event is for people who are interested in volunteer service and people who work with volunteers. Hear stories from full-time deployed Partners In Service about the meaning of volunteer service in their faith and lives. Learn ways to lead and encourage a volunteer community from the Milwaukee General Synod Volunteer Coordinator. Get some ideas for celebrating the volunteers in your congregation before the program year concludes.
With Rev. Elena Larssen, Minister for Volunteer Engagement, this event is a chance to learn about the historic Volunteer Ministries of the UCC and reflect on volunteer opportunities that may be calling you to service, while picking up some inspiration for volunteerism in your congregation. All are welcome!
