Join CCD for Healthy, Vital Congregations

Dear Ones of Eastern and Western Michigan,

Eastertide joy to you and yours.

As our registration deadline (June 1) approaches, I am taking this opportunity to again invite you and a team from your parish to participate in our second College for Congregational Development (CCD).

We are looking forward to building on the success of our 2023 diocesan CCD launch as we gather to take next steps in becoming more healthy, more faithful, and more effective congregations.

CCD is for parish teams of leaders—lay and ordained—who have a keen interest and capacity to learn, grow, and engage with others—and then to bring the content home to their local congregation. Together we will explore our current realities in ministry, discern where God is leading us next, and work on goals, strategies, and actions for how to get there.

However small or large your parish is, and whatever the joys and challenges you are currently facing, CCD offers opportunities to grow and connect with others in mutually supportive and encouraging ways.

Visit the CCD page of our website for more details on our 2024 week together. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

In Peace,

The Rev. BJ Heyboer
CCD Coordinator for Eastern and Western Michigan
