HARC Meeting: Engaging a Younger Generation

December 10, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

Is your congregation aging?  Wondering why younger attendees don’t stay or are not fully engaged in the life of your house of worship?  In December we will hear from millennial pastor Katie Hamilton on “Engaging a Younger Generation.”

Lunch will be provided by St. John’s Episcopal Church with a free-will offering basket.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP online by Friday, December 6 so we can get a head-count.  Please know that you are welcome to come even if you forget to RSVP, but the notice does help with food estimates and seating arrangements.

Parking at St. John’s is in the lot behind the church, which is accessed by Walnut Street (corner of Walnut & Antietam St.).  Enter the building in the middle of the parking lot and follow the signs to St. Mary’s Chapel.

HARC meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month except July and August. The meeting usually rotates to different houses of faith, giving each an opportunity to host. Meeting time is at 12:30 p.m. for lunch with occasional evening meetings for special programs.

Clergy and/or lay representatives of any Washington County house of worship or faith-based organization are welcome to participate. Only supporting members are eligible to vote.  Other members of the community are also welcome to attend.

Brought to Washington County by Trinity Lutheran Church in 2010, the program now serves more than 1,000 students in 33 schools and involves partnerships with more than 50 churches and organizations.
