MCM Mondays

You are welcome to join in a MCM Monday learning and conversation event.

These 45 minute sessions are designed to bring brief input on a topic relevant to congregational life and mission, and then allow you to connect with others in MCM who may be thinking about or working on this topic.

All sessions will be online, 8:00pm - 8:45pm.

Upcoming Mondays


January 30 - Camps and Congregations

Janet Peters, Associate Program Director for Camps with Meaning, will share some insights from conversations with pastors about the impact of camp ministry on the ministries of the church, as well as how the church impacts the camping ministry, and will invite sharing around your experiences as well. We will also talk about all the ways that congregations and individuals can support and be involved at camp in summer and year-round.

February 6 - Zoom, livestream, record. Where are we at?

Darryl Neustaedter Barg, Director of Communications, will explore some of the pros and cons of the various ways we broadcast our worship services. Then we'll talk about who it's for, where we're all at, and how we feel about it.
