ReConnecting is a 7-week or 7-session experience designed to get congregational small groups in touch with historical (Wesleyan) roots and contemporary cultural forces, so that an individual can embrace his or her "priesthood." It assists churches in vision development, identity formation, and strategic planning. The 7-session experience may be customized based on the church's vision and need -- to stimulate a frozen congregation, to deploy as an adult group Lenten activity, or to revisit Wesleyan heritage.
