PARABLES | An opportunity to explore inclusive worship

A Stillspeaking Worship Event

October 26, 2014 | Wayzata Community Church UCC (Wayzata, MN)

Special Needs. Special Gifts.

Come experience PARABLES. Reflect on the experience and bring back what you can to your own ministry settings.

PARABLES is an interactive, "special-needs friendly" Worship Service, open to anyone and everyone. It is designed for the "little red fish in all of us – that part of us that yearns to swim against the tide!" This service celebrates the gifts of all who are part of the Body of Christ – those with special needs and those without. Check out PARABLES and what others have to say about it.

The Institute

The Stillspeaking Worship Institute

The Stillspeaking Worship Institute connects United Church of Christ churches that are doing innovative worship practices with other UCC faith communities interested in developing these practices in their congregations. The learning format is experiential and reflective. Attendees participate in the worship experience, reflect on what they have seen, heard and experienced with the worship leaders from the host church and leave with an understanding of how to transfer the foundational aspects of these worship practices to their home congregations.
