Faith Development Current Offerings

Faith Development June 2017

Faith development is the process—religious, spiritual, and/or otherwise—by which we make meaning in our lives. FUUN Faith Development supports and encourages this in three ways: with classes, nonviolent communication practice groups, and covenant groups.

 

Classes
Various days and times, as indicated. Childcare is available UNLESS otherwise indicated. If you have questions, please email classes@thefuun.org.

Annual Leadership Orientation
Wednesday, June 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Capek Room (Morgan House)
The Leadership Development Committee presents this annual program that will assist you in learning more about being a church leader and the principles, practices, and procedures for how to get things done at FUUN. Learn about church organization and structure, benefits, roles and expectations of leadership, committees and their charges, policies and procedures, and avenues of administration and communication. All leaders, ongoing and new, should attend—and anyone who is interested is welcome. Much has changed since last year, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions of Board and Leadership Development Committee members, as well as staff.

This workshop will be repeated Sunday, July 16, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Palmer Room (Morgan House)

 

Nonviolent Communication Practice Groups
Email nvc@thefuun.org for more information.
Nonviolent Communication Practice Groups are open to anyone, regardless of past experience here or elsewhere. To change one’s mind set and habit patterns from a right vs. wrong model to a compassionate and connecting model takes practice. To connect empathetically with others, and with oneself, takes practice. To begin to live in the world we dream about takes practice.

NVC Practice Groups are on hiatus for the summer. Registration for 2017/18 groups will take place in August, with meetings beginning in September.

 

Covenant Groups
Email covenantgroups@thefuun.org for more information.
Covenant Groups are made up of five to 12 people, each led by a facilitator, which meet twice a month, usually in participants’ homes, for the purpose of supporting individual spiritual growth and deepening a sense of community among participants. Each session gives participants an opportunity to reflect with one another on an engaging topic, which might include: Generosity, Bitterness, Faith, Longing, Racism, etc. Covenant groups are an opportunity to listen and share with a subset of the congregation.
