Experiencing Fresh Expressions
Come enjoy a day of interactive learning about Fresh Expressions! In the morning we will spend some time learning about Fresh Expressions as a whole, talk about evangelism and new ways of thinking about it, and engage in an exercise where participants will map out their communities. During and after lunch participants will then get to experience what different Fresh Expressions might actually look like through live demonstrations, utilizing the outdoor amenities Mount Shepherd Retreat Center has to offer. If you have wondered about Fresh Expressions or looking for new ways to reach new people for Jesus, this is a great opportunity to do so in a fun and interactive way! The $10 registration fee covers your lunch and activities.
When: May 15, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Where: Mount Shepherd Retreat Center
Cost: $10/person - lunch included

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
