We began our gathering in Founders’ Hall with an introduction to the basics of church finances, presented by leaders from The Cornerstone Fund.
Inspirational worship followed in the Sanctuary. The service included welcoming Rivers of Living Waters Ministries as the newest member of the Metro Association. (Pictures can be found here.)
Two workshops followed worship:
- Continued education about church finances by The Cornerstone Fund representatives.
- Discussion of how Safe Haven UCC is welcoming the gifts of all who gather with them, led by Rev. Carolyn C. Blair and Rev. Floyd R. Blair.
