Holy Conversations Schedule

We are excited about seeing you in Fort Worth for our Holy Conversations on May 21-May 23!  Below is our revised schedule for the event so that you can make plans accordingly.  I want to thank the Ecumenical Stewardship Center for sponsoring lunch for us on Thursday and Brite Divinity School for hosting our “Beer and Millennials” panel on Thursday evening.  Nathan Dungan (Share, Save, Spend), the Ecumenical Stewardship Center, and the Center for Faith and Giving will have stewardship and finance related materials available for sale during the event.

You can call the Center for Faith and Giving if you have any questions 317-713-2404.

Blessings and safe travels.

With the exception of Wednesday evening, all events are in the Bass Conference Center.  Wednesday evening worship is in the Chapel.  Participants should park in the CM/FS lot immediately east of the building in the white lined spots only (not the orange lined spots).
