Workshops Offer Window into Ministries and Faith Issues of Northern Kentucky

One of the opportunities when we gather at convention this week is to see examples of ministry and explore issues of faith through the lens of our brothers and sisters of Northern Kentucky.  We will do this through a series of workshops offer to those attending Convention.  Eight workshop topics will be offered.  Each Convention participant can chose two topics


Some of the issues and ministries are peculiar to or more evident to our parishes in  this area of the Diocese.  Other issues are important to us all - Northern Kentucky simply has resources available to address them.  We will be able to attend workshops on fantastic ministries - St. Paul's Pantry, Northern Ky Reading  Camp, Fresh Expressions of Worship and Ministry, Back Pack Ministries (food for school school children).  One workshop, "Attracting New Partners and New Dollars to your Congregation", will invite us to consider creative use of our Sacred Spaces.  Other workshops will address wider issues of society - Civil Conversation about Coal, led by members of the Leadership team;  Faith in a Time of War, Led by a Navy Chaplain;  Issues of Addiction - a great challenge in that part of our state.


The people of our Northern Kentucky Parishes have been hard and work welcoming us to this Convention.  We hope to all come away with a richer view of this part of our common life.

-The Rt. Rev. Douglas Hahn

Each year a convention poster depicting the theme of the convention is given to each deputation for their church.  A limited number of this year's signed and numbered poster will be for sale at the Leadership table in the exhibit area for individuals who would like them.  A donation of a minimum of $10, cash or check, is asked. Proceeds will go to the work of the Diocesan Leadership Team.
From the Bishop
What's God Up To?
Sixty years ago, Grace Episcopal Church met in the basement of the Florence Fire Station (the only fire station in town in those days) as a small group of families committed to worship, study, fellowship, and service. Today, Grace has moved into its own building a few blocks away, we have welcomed many new friends and families into the community, but our commitment to sharing God with each other and the community has not changed.
Rector's Reflection by Reverend Marshall Jolly
It is always a joy for us to welcome our Bishop to Grace Episcopal Church for a time in fellowship, study, prayer, and worship together. This year marks our 60th year in ministry among the people of Northern Kentucky. We are eager to share some of the many exciting things that are underway-sure signs of God's movement in our midst!
