Take advantage of these excellent courses offered by our CERG (Central East Regional Group) staff and clergy. The spring semester begins tomorrow, January 22 – sign up soon, and take the classes online at your convenience throughout the spring. You can take the classes on your own, or ideally as part of a team. If more than one congregation in our cluster gets a team together to take any given course, our CERG staff person will help to organize a Saturday in-person session so that participants can exchange ideas, insights and experiences. This spring, classes will be offered on a variety of topics at the heart of congregational life, from healthy leadership and healthy membership to stewardship, outreach and growth, intercultural skills, theology and history. Each 8-session course costs only $30, and the Leadership Development and Resource Committee (LDR) has scholarship monies available to support your participation. Please check the website at http://www.uuinstitute.org/ for course descriptions and more information, or contact Debby Herman or any member of LDR (email@example.com).
