Looking to deepen your engagement at Pullen? Want to learn more about our faith community? Join us for a workshop on Saturday, January 20
Pullen Church is full of leaders. The Pullen family includes many amazingly capable and committed people who are generous in using their many gifts to enhance the ministry of our congregation both inside our walls and beyond. But what does it mean to offer your skills and insight in the context of our church? How is this different from being a leader at work or at home or in the community? Obviously many skills we develop over time are transferable to many life situations. To be effective in different contexts, however, it is important to learn what is distinctive (or “quirky”) about each setting in which we’re asked to serve.
On Saturday, January 20, we will offer a morning workshop we’re calling “Pullen 201” to reflect upon the unique characteristics of Pullen. We’ll talk a bit about Pullen’s history and our current ministries. We’ll consider characteristics of our congregation and how it functions that may not be obvious at first glance, but actually make us who we are. We’ll discuss how decisions are made and what makes someone an effective leader at Pullen. We will also touch on some of the challenges we are facing as we look to the future.
If you are a member of a council, committee, mission group or other “official” Pullen group, we encourage you to join us for this event. However, ALL members and friends of Pullen are invited to participate. We will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 1:00 p.m. Coffee and snacks will be available. We’ll dismiss before lunch. In order to know how many people to expect, we hope you will let us know you’re coming by registering online below by Wednesday, January 17. Or you can just call the church office at 919-828-0897 and let us know you will join us.
As we begin the New Year, we hope many Pullenites will gather for this time of reflection as we explore further how to be church together as we work to make a difference in our world.
