What Emerging Spirit campaign?
Emerging Spirit is an initiative focused on establishing and nurturing a new relationship between the United Church and Canadians, especially those between the ages of 30-45 who are one of the first Canadian generations to grow up largely outside of the church.The team has done a wide range of research into how best to connect with this age group. THe campaign will include a special website, magazine ads, and opportunities for churches to learn more about being welcoming congregations (there will be a training event for this in THunder Bay at the end of April).
The next step to fall into place will be the website WonderCafe. This website is set to go live on November 7. THe office has just received a binder of information about how best to utilize this website in local contexts. ASk Gord about it if you are interested.
