Center for Congregations Sermon Resources

Center For Congregations

   The Center for Congregations works to strengthen Indiana congregations by hosting events and workshops and seeking out and sharing the latest resources available to congregations. While its work is based in Indiana, the Center shares its findings and educational material with congregations everywhere on its website, and through its newsletter, Centerpiece, and its blog, Centerview. 
  Resources for small membership congregations. 
What if there was a way to solve your congregation’s most pressing problem? What if an approach exists that will solve something that was intractable, unmovable, resistant to all your efforts? Would you be interested? Or would you be hesitant, possibly suspicious? There is an approach that can help you solve an arduous challenge, and the solution already exists in your community. This approach has been used in many spheres of life, including nutrition, health care and education. Yet it hasn’t been translated to spiritual life or the flourishing of congregations. This document will introduce you to the untapped approach called positive deviance. http://thecrg.org/content/files/Positive-Deviance.pdf
   Congregational Resource Guide: The Congregational Resource Guide (CRG) is an online tool designed to help congregational leaders find resources to address their individual needs. The tool allows you to search and save articles and relevant information, and create a workspace for your congregation.

Nothing is More Important- Call to Community

Nothing is More Important- Call to Community

"No challenge before us is more important — and more potentially life-giving — than that we come to see and know our fellow citizens, our neighbors, who have become strangers. Journalist Anand Giridharadas and Whitney Kimball Coe of the Rural Assembly have two very different histories and places in our life together. But they are both stitching relationship across the ruptures that have made politics thin veneers over human dramas of power and frailty, fear and hope. We spoke at the Obama Foundation’s inaugural summit in Chicago."
