We had over 30 administrative staff participate in our power lunch bunch events last year. Those who attended had a chance to discuss issues that matter to them as admin staff, meet their peers in other churches and offices, and get specific information on self-care, communications, and record-keeping.
2019 promises to be another great year of events. Please put these four dates on your calendar and make plans to join us for as many as you can:
- Tuesday, February 12 | Be Your Own Valentine – Loving Ourselves
- Tuesday, May 14 | Bring Your Pastor to Lunch Day with a Focus on Internal Communication
- Tuesday, August 13 | Theme TBD
- Tuesday, November 12 | Theme Holiday/TBD
These events are FREE. Just let us know if you plan to join us by clicking on the RSVP links for each event before the registration deadline (usually one day prior to the event).
All events will take place at BCM’s offices (500 South Church Street). A light lunch will be served beginning at noon with our program/discussion starting about 12:30pm. We’ll end promptly at 1:30 although BCM staff will remain available until 2pm to answer individual questions or provide additional support as needed.
Tuesday, February 12 | Noon to 1:30pm
Be Your Own Valentine – Loving Ourselves
Valentine’s Day can be a sweet celebration of love, but is often focused on our feelings for others. At this meeting, we’ll explore what it means to be our OWN Valentine. We’ll have a few special guests (more on that later), but please come prepared to share a few of your own tips for self-care and making yourself a priority in this busy world.
Tuesday, May 14 | Noon to 1:30pm
Bring Your Pastor to Lunch Day with a Focus on Internal Communication
We’ll share resources and ideas on effective communication methods and what they can look like within the church office and staff. We will provide different resources available to help make communication between team members easier.
Tuesday, August 13 | Noon to 1:30pm
Who’s Emailing You? Solving the Puzzle of the Province
Do you get emails from Beverly, Heather, Sheila, Hanna, and Vince? Who ARE these people and what should you be doing with their information? Join us as we explore the role of provincial agencies in the ministry of the Moravian Church. Why does their communication with you matter? How do these various organizations fit into the life of your congregation? Representatives from different provincial agencies will join us to solve the puzzle!
Tuesday, November 12 | Noon to 1:30pm
