Toolbox for Christian Educators

12.15.15 | by Deacon Pam Dunbar

    The Christian Formation Commission presents 2016 Toolbox for Christian Educators Saturday, January 23, 2016 8:30 AM – 12:00 Noon Church of the Transfiguration 14115 Hillcrest Road, Dallas, 75254

    Christian Educators are the architects of so many parish programs that hard hats could be a normal part of what we wear to church. So, whether it’s building faith creatively with adult and kids, operating on a shoestring budget, putting together new ways to present programs for women, or organizing Vacation Bible School, this event is for you and your church educator team!

    We’ll begin with our keynote speaker, the Rt. Rev. George Sumner, Seventh Bishop of Dallas, and continue with five resource and idea-filled workshops.

    There is no charge for this event, but we would like to know how many are coming from your church. Contact Deacon Pam Dunbar,  .
