Super Saturday is a collaborative effort of the Southern New England Conference, UCC, with presenters and attendees from different states and denominations.
A full day of workshops, forums, networking, worship and marketplace.
At our Spring Super Saturday, we are welcoming Rabbi Elan Babchuck, Founding Director of GLEAN Network, an incubator and network for faith leaders who seek to reimagine the role of religion in an ever-changing world yearning for meaning, belonging, and justice. He serves as the Director of Innovation at CLAL, a think-tank focused on the future of faith in America.
In addition, we will be offering a wide variety of workshops. The list of workshops and descriptions can be found below in the News & Info section or you can download the brochure. One of the workshops we are offering is:
"How Congregations Thrive with Part-Time Clergy - 43 percent of mainline Protestant congregations have no full-time paid clergy, but many are in decline with antiquated ministry models. Come learn what's working at 20 churches that switched from full-time to part-time clergy and experienced more vitality, not less, after the transition. This workshop is for laypeople and clergy in two types of churches: those led by part-time pastors and those that might want to make their pastorates part-time in the future."
