Festival of Workshops 2013: 50 small grants to congregations are handed out at the end of the day
On Saturday, March 9th, the Atlantic District welcomed approximately 300 guests from both District and out-of district congregations. This year's FOW theme was ":Congregations at the Crossroads." Throughout the day, that theme was recalled often, as in Dr. Benke's opening remarks, in the address by keynote speaker Pastor Rob Morris of Christ the King Church in Newtown, CT, and by many of the workshop presenters. At the closing session, Bishop David H. Benke asked those in the audience who were so moved to say a few words about how they felt about their experience at the FOW.
