DETAILS? George will provide an overview of The Life Cycle and Stages of Congregational Development and then focus in seasons of the life cycle where Potential ReThriving Congregations are found and how the Thriving Congregations Soar with Faith emphasis will address these congregations.

CMBA Emphasis—Thriving Congregations Soar with Faith: A new emphasis has been created for congregations in three of the five stages of development in the congregational life cycle. These are Potential Thriving Congregations, Thriving Congregations, and Potential ReThriving Congregations.

Check out previous video conferences and resource material on Thriving Congregations Soar with Faith at https://columbiametro.org/thriving-congregations-soar-with-faith/. Already a Facebook group has been developed for dialogue about this approach and you can connect with it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/thrivingcongregationssoar/. Soon we will be updating our website at www.ColumbiaMetro.org to have a clear section that focuses on this emphasis.

Resources for CMBA Congregations

There are specific benefits to this relationship available to all active and financially contributing congregations. But many people do not know about the benefits. During the month of July we will share through these briefings, and posts on our website (www.ColumbiaMetro.org) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CMBAssociation/), information about these benefits and how to access them. Get ready to be amazed at all the benefits of membership from your family of congregations!
