ConnectThe South-Central Synod of Wisconsin is Proud to Present: "CONNECT!"
Connect is a unique, two-year process for developing a strategy for your congregation's future. It is a renewal process that strives to empower congregations to grow spiritually, discover their gifts as a congregation, and live out their faith in the community by sharing the gifts with which they have been blessed. It consists of workshops, a coaching relationship, homework for the leaders and the congregation, and developing a strategy for the congregation's future. Over the two-year period there are four workshops. A brochure with complete details will be mailed this week. Rostered leaders and Congregational Presidents should keep an eye out for it. The first session will be held Saturday, October 1. For more information and/or to register, contact DEM, Rev. Erik Jelinek at
