Tuesday: September 6, 12, 20, 27, October 4, 11, 14

7:00 PM (In-person and Online via Zoom) | 6:00 PM Eucharist

When a church shifts from an ending to a new beginning, it can be a daunting challenge but also a huge opportunity. What happens when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear?


Church growth, building family-centered ministries, raising up new leaders, financial sustainability, welcoming a new rector... These issues, and many more, are front-and-center in the life of all Episcopal congregations, especially those in a transition process.


The St. Bede's Fall Education Series will be a 7-part series based on the book by Susan Beaumont, "How To Lead When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going" Leading in a Liminal Season." Whether you are currently a "leader" at St. Bede's or not, this education series is designed for everyone who wants to see St. Bede's thrive in the years to come.


The series will be at 7:00 PM on Tuesdays (September 6, 13, 20, 27, October 4, 11, & 18). It will be in the hybrid format (Luther Hall and Zoom). Eucharist will proceed each session at 6:00 PM in the Sanctuary. We invite you to join us. To assist with planning purposes, we kindly ask that you register for the series.
