Beyond the Bulletin is a wonderful resource for Councils to use to fully consider their communication with their congregations. The exercises encourage Council members to think deeply and consider how their history impacts what is heard by the congregation. Every Council will benefit by this resource, especially those that don't think they need it. 
Dr. Claudia Coughran, former congregational vice president.

I found the Beyond the Bulletin process to be well laid out to guide congregations to a useful conclusion. The process is enlightening and effective to help work thru congregational issues or exciting projects!

How come another green_edited.jpg

I was extremely dubious about spending a Saturday morning in a workshop, even if its title was Living the Resurrection.


I am so glad I attended – so many of the topics we discussed, albeit norms for everyday living, took on new meaning as they were fleshed out in relation to being a thoughtful participant/member of a church congregation. On a journey to alleviating  anxiety, I realize more now than ever I must be aware of other  person’s levels of anxiousness and sometimes feeling ‘dissed’ by my flippant responses or body language.


If I want to introduce a new idea or concept for growth in our church community, I must be an active listener to others approaches, rather than entering each meeting with a pat answer ready for solving a problem. And most importantly, I must engage in a thoughtful way that will elicit opportunities for growth, understanding and continued work on relationship building.


Sounds simple, yet I feel I ‘relearned’ some tools for working with members of my congregation.
