CRE 2015

The 2015 CRE was Saturday March 14 at Kishwaukee Community College in Malta, IL.

Sponsored by the Northern Illinois Synod Congregational Life Committee, the Congregational Resourcing Event(CRE) is one of this synod’s finest yearly events. Church council members, teachers, musicians, staff, volunteers, and leaders–just about everyone in a congregation–can take advantage of this learning event to strengthen skills, gather resources, network with others, and discover new ways to enhance congregational and individual ministries. Come, experience and bring home new ministry tools.

The Congregational Resourcing Event offers many varied educational workshop selections for you, your key congregational leaders, and other interested congregation members. Many groups, agencies, and institutions have displays.

During the CRE Worship, a special offering is taken.

Kishwaukee College is handicap accessible.

Supervised child care in Kishwaukee College’s on-campus Early Childhood Center is provided with pre-registration. A free-will offering will be accepted to cover child-care costs.
