Three Staffers to Offer Workshops at Women's Event


Three Members of the Rhode Island Conference staff will offer workshops at the New England Women’s Celebration in Portland, Maine, April 6 to 8.

Kristin Putney, the Conference's Christian Education/ Youth Ministry Resource Consultant will co-lead Art for the Soul:  Prayer Beads and More!, an opportunity experience prayer through motion, color, ribbons and beads.

Rev. Jennifer Geary, Irons Homestead Director, will offer: Intergenerational Community—Getting ALL the Women Together, explorin how the era in which one grows up affects one's understanding of community. 

And Peggy Matteson, Commissioned Minister of Congregational Health,  will offer: Welcoming People Experiencing Mental Illness to the Table, offering positive, easily implemented actions and activities.

The New England Women’s Celebration takes place every 4 years at various locations in New England. It is held over (or near) the weekend of Mothering Sunday, the 4th Sunday of Lent, which is traditionally a time when the strict observances of Lent were relaxed for a day so church folks could return to the Mother Church of their roots. 

The purpose of the Celebrations is to reach women in the pews and to involve them in learning and sharing their faith beyond the local church and Conference setting.
