Kitchen Sink Workshops
Covering Everything but the Kitchen Sink
February and March 2012
Congregations across the Missouri District are working hard to reach and care for children and families. But quite often, servants in congregations are really looking for ideas, encouragement and support.
The Kitchen Sink Workshops, planned for February and March 2012, are a place where veteran leaders can provide guidance for those working in specific areas of congregation life and then facilitate discussion.
The conferences will begin and end in the Word as a group but have break-out sessions on specific topics in-between the opening and closing.
The first break-out includes sectionals on Vacation Bible School, Dealing with Conflict in Congregations, Youth Ministry and Outreach.
The second break-out features sectionals on Sunday School, Ministry to Inactives, Family Life Ministry and Assimilation. There is also a separate track for high school youth with age and ministry appropriate sectionals.
This is an ideal opportunity for small and medium sized congregations to support volunteers. The cost is minimal at just $25 per congregation, and yet the possibilities are unlimited as congregation members consider ways to strengthen and expand vital forms of service.
The workshops are located strategically across the state to be accessible for you. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and you will be done by 12 noon. Attend the site that works best for you.

The Kitchen Sink Workshops cover many of the areas of congregation life where volunteers are looking for new ideas or encouragement. We pray that your congregation will participate and that the workshop will be a blessing to God's people.
