June 1, 2017
Once again, churches are invited to gather and share a meal and stories of faith across this diocese and beyond on Thursday, June 1, 2017. At each dinner, a moderator will prompt participants to share stories of their faith journey with printed questions. Sharing Faith provides a welcoming and safe way to engage one another, articulate our faith and build relationships.

New cards are not being printed this year. For more information about Sharing Faith, contact Leslie Mixson or Laura Shaver.
Sharing Faith has become a beloved diocesan-wide event, and many churches hold Sharing Faith Dinners in ways that best fit the different congregations. Some gather on the designated date, and some hold monthly dinners. Some host the dinners in parishioners’ homes, while others gather in the parish hall or a designated space. We invite you to embrace this event in the best way that honors your congregation.
