2021 Denominational Celebration FAQ


FAQs

WHY SHOULD I ENCOURAGE MY ENTIRE CONGREGATION TO PARTICIPATE?

The Denominational Celebration is the perfect time for your local congregation to be encouraged, inspired, challenged, and to reflect and discern the vision to which God has called your unique congregation. If you are able to spend time together over meals, in worship, and prayer together, it is the perfect time to take your next step toward Healthy Church. There is also intentional time set aside for your church to reflect and process.

 

IF MY CHURCH IS USING THE DENOMINATIONAL CELEBRATION AS A WATCH PARTY FOR THE WHOLE CONGREGATION, DO I STILL NEED TO REGISTER MYSELF?
