Rachel Gilmore & Kay Kotan: Leading Your Church Through Advent
Join Kay Kotan and Rachel Gilmore on October 7 as they discuss ways to involve your congregation in an Advent study, and offer Advent study ideas and materials. The authors will use suggestions from their latest book, Voices of Christmas, as well as providing suggestions to help get your congregation involved in an Advent study together. A few of the ideas to be discussed include:
- Going deep without considerable preparation
- Including multiple voices and faces
- Flexible methods for engaging resources
- Congregational, group, and individual approaches
- Taking steps beyond Advent
