The Table at Central United Methodist Church, Sacramento, Calif.
A one-day event for preachers in the Sacramento area
Spend a day with members of the Sermon Brainwave podcast team and your local colleagues in ministry thinking about how and why you preach. Consider how sermons that are attentive to biblical passages and their nuances can lead congregations into rich reflections on God, the gospel, and the contexts in which we live. A combination of plenary sessions, workshops, and discussion will provide opportunities to ponder your approach to preaching in general and some of the specific biblical texts coming up during the season after Pentecost. Conclude the day refreshed and equipped with new insights to fuel your preaching.
This event is open to all preachers, whether lay or ordained. Coffee, light snacks, and lunch included.
The event will begin at 9 a.m., but if you arrive anytime between 8:30 and 9 a.m. you will be able to enjoy gathering music from the jazz musicians who make up the worship team at The Table United Methodist Church.
Tuition: $65 per person (includes lunch); need-based scholarships are available
Time: Thursday, May 2, 2019, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
