UUMN offers a unique opportunity this year for ministers, religious educators, worship associates, and other colleagues to join us in beautiful and historic Madison, Wisconsin for a conference geared toward exploring shared ministry in our faith communities. Worship design expert Marcia McFee will join us to offer ideas and perspectives on creatively enlivening and deepening our worship culture.We will offer a $100 discount on the full registration fee to UUMA/LREDA members who accompany their music staff person to the conference.
We extend this special invitation to our LREDA and UUMA colleagues:
The Conference Committee for the Madison 2016 UUMN conference is creating a Worship Design Team to plan the four worship services for the conference. The team will work closely with Marcia McFee, meeting by phone or video conference twice prior to the conference and on site at predetermined times.
The Conference Worship Team will consist of 3-5 people with complimentary worship leading expertise. Ideally the team will include at least one musician, clergy, a religious educator and/or a worship committee member. This team will have a unique opportunity to work closely with Marcia McFee on worship design. They will, in turn, invite diverse participation from conference attendees in the leadership of each service.
All members the Conference Worship Team should expect to spend a significant amount of time on worship design prior to the conference. In addition, participants must plan on arriving into Madison no later than 12 noon on Wednesday, must be fully registered for the conference and present throughout. Any team members who are not local MUST stay at the conference hotel.
