Join us for the 7th Annual PCD-LREDA Pot of Gold Conference, Saturday, September 29th, at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento. This year’s theme is Re-imagining Sunday School. The conference is open to Religious Education volunteers, RE staff, seminarians, religious educators, and Ministers. Come learn, share, connect, get support, and be inspired. The event runs from 8:30.m. to 4: 00 p.m. Registration and light breakfast start at 8:30, with worship starting at 9:00. The keynote takes place after worship, followed by lunch and two afternoon workshops.

Our Keynote Speakers are Kimberly Sweeney of Courageous Faith Consulting and Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh from the UUA’s Pacific Western Region staff.

Rev. Sarah Gibb Millspaugh and Kim Sweeney will be talking about faith, family, fear, and the future. During our time together they will:

~ identify the ways that community and congregational cultures have shifted
~ articulate what families and children are capable of and need
~ address the common fears around change
~ explore emerging models of relevant and vital ministry with families and children

In addition to Kimberly and Sarah’s address, there will be a wide-ranging selection of afternoon workshops designed to strengthen your Family Ministry and support your staff and volunteers. Workshop tracks include Teaching, Youth, Religious Professionals, Keynote, Adult/Multigenerational, Creativity, and Miscellaneous. Full workshop information will be available by mid-September.
