Betty will be leading us to consider how we are Building Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive Congregations. The ministerial committee and board of directors are strongly encouraging congregational leadership groups (board, council, elders, deacons, etc.) to participate in this session. This is not limited to delegates but does require registration for the Annual Meeting.
