Rethinking Church:
Better Questions, Bolder Experiments

July 26-28, 2017
Luther Seminary
Saint Paul, Minn.

Are we still doing Sunday morning just like it's 1950? In what ways have our worship, education and fellowship changed? How is the Holy Spirit forming community in our contexts in 2017? In the last century, Christian congregations in North America largely imagined their mission as attracting people to Sunday morning. Active Christians were imagined as those who show up. Congregations were taught to measure attendance and offerings. If you are ready to ask different questions than simply how to get people to come, Rethinking Church is for you.
