Concurrent Workshop A1:  The Healing Role of the FCN When a Church Closes 
Barbara Barden 
Have you experienced the closure of a community of faith? Regardless of the cause, the results can be devastating.

This interactive workshop explores the multifaceted crisis of church closure and strategies for FCNs to work through both the losses others face as well as their own.
