WELCOMING THE STRANGER: A CONVERSATION AROUND IMMIGRATION with WORLD RELIEF
There are many voices speaking into this polarizing issue within our government, our communities, and within our churches. What is the obligation of the Church toward refugees and immigrants? Do immigrants need the Church or does the Church need immigrants? Perhaps you live in a community or serve in a pastoral role where refugees and immigrants are already present. How is your congregation responding to these individuals and families who are a now an integral part of our increasingly globalized world? What if Kansas City became an intentional site for resettling refugees? Would our communities and churches be welcoming or inhospitable or even indifferent? These and other questions are the topic of an open conversation with World Relief which is being hosted at NTS. Come and contribute to the dialogue with your experience and your questions.
Coffee and refreshments will be provided and lunch will be available for a small donation. If you have any questions, contact Lynne Bollinger at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Nathan Lundgren of World Relief at: email@example.com .

CPL WEBINAR ON “FACEBOOK FOR CHURCHES”
Rev. Keith Davenport
WEBINAR DESCRIPTION: Everyone is on Facebook — teenagers and seniors, urbanites and rural homemakers, white collars and blue collars. In fact 71% of all online adults have a Facebook profile. Likely the majority of your congregation and your community are on Facebook and use it regularly. How are you using Facebook in a way that engages both your church people and your community in meaningful ways? This workshop will help provide some best practices and effective strategies for churches to connect with Christians and Non-Christians alike via Facebook.
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Keith Davenport (NTS Class of 2012) is an engagement consultant with seven years of social media marketing experience. As an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene with twelve years of local church ministry experience, he understands the ins and outs of social media.
