8/19-21:  Building an Inclusive Church @ Newport PC

Basic Workshop 8/19-20; Optional Coaching Workshop 8/21

The Building an Inclusive Church trainings help you design and implement a process for your congregation to publicly and intentionally welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions. Building an Inclusive Church equips you with ways to create dialogue – deepening relationships throughout the congregation rather than sparking debate and division. You will have opportunities to engage through a mix of presentation, hands-on practice, and small group discussion. Grounded in scripture and discipleship, this training allows you to explore your own Christian call to hospitality and evangelism.

The Optional Sunday, 8/21 Coaching Workshop offers additional free training for those interested in becoming a local resource for churches engaged in the BIC process.  Updates on LGBTQ advocacy in Washington State will also be provided.
