Afternoon Workshop: 1:00-3:00pm “Envisioning the Church as a Center of Wellness for Adults, Teens, and Parents Both in Your Church and the Greater Community”
Wellness is a very popular topic in our culture today, but it is nothing new to the church, where we have been talking about wellness and wholeness for 2,000 years. Wellness offerings that integrate spirituality and wellness for adults, parents, teens, and families are an ideal way to reach beyond the walls of our church and into the wider community, as well as a way to deepen a culture of wellness within our congregation.
Join Scott Stoner and Holly Hughes Stoner, co-founders and creators of the Living Compass Faith & Wellness Ministry, for a fun and informative workshop on how congregations can become centers of wellness in their communities. Scott, an Episcopal priest, pastoral counselor, and retreat leader for 35 years is the author of Your Living Compass: Living Well in Thought, Word, and Deed, published by Church Publishing.” Holly has a background as a grade school and high school teacher, and is currently a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She is the co-author of the Teen Compass and the Parent Wellness Compass and serves and oversees all the family wellness resources for Living Compass.
Participants in the afternoon workshop will:
*Learn about a Christian based understanding and approach to wellness that is grounded in Scripture and the traditions of the Church.
*Learn how wellness offerings are an ideal bridge to help congregations connect with the felt-needs of adults, parents, teens, and families in their larger communities.
*Learn about specific ideas that have worked in other churches and communities.
*Learn how to support and expand wellness offerings in their church.
