THE RESTORATION PROJECT: ADULT EDUCATION TO FORM MATURE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS

WAS THE CORRECT GENDER CHOSEN?
Our database is is only as good as the information in it.  Your information may be correct...and it may not be. In all probability your information was sent to us by someone other than you, then taken from the document we got and your information  was then entered into the database by another person who might not know you. A "perfect storm" of a chance to have mistakes in your information!  Check yours here.

RESOURCE GRANTS INFORMATION LUNCHEON
The Center for Congregations has invited Indiana congregations to an information luncheon to learn about their Resource Grants program.
During this session, enjoy a delicious lunch and conversation about the services the Center offers Indiana congregations, such as resource consulting, education opportunities and our Resource Grants program.
Participants will learn about the Resource Grants application process: identifying resources that best fit your congregation, planning a successful project, and applying for a grant from the Center for Congregations. Join us for this informative discussion.
A reminder about matching funds from the diocese is here.
