Called Together in Mission

Plan now to attend the 2011 Called Together in Mission (CTIM) on March 12, 2011 at First Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids, IA.
This year, CTIM welcomes The Rev. Dr. Benjamin Stewart, the Gordon A. Braatz Assistant Professor of Worship, Dean of the Chapel at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC). Dr. Stewart’s keynote will be followed by a Bible study he is preparing based on Psalm 104. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops on subjects ranging from expressing one’s faith through the arts to learning about what are the best resources to use for youth ministries.
Registration includes a keynote address and Bible study in the morning and then individual workshops in the afternoon. The workshops cover a variety of topics related to the work and ministry of congregational life. CTIM is a great event for every member of the congregation.
