Congregations Alive! is a three-day event filled with powerful sermons, discussion, fellowship, and workshops led by local and national faith and justice leaders. We are pleased to announce the fourth installment planned for February 7—9, 2019 at First Plymouth Congregational Church in Englewood, CO.

***For full details on schedule, programming, leadership, meals, lodging, and more, please view the full Congregations Alive! 4 Informational Packet. You can also learn more on the CA!4 event website.***

The word most used to describe Congregations Alive! is "inspiring." Through our generative work, you will leave feeling re-energized by new ideas on how we can Be the Church!

This year, special guests include Rev. Traci Blackmon, Executive Minister of Justice & Witness Ministries—United Church of Christ; Rev. Amanda Henderson, Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance; and Rev. Dr. Ivy Beckwith, prolific author and expert on faith formation and children's ministries. In addition, our own Rev. Chris Gilmore, Lead Pastor of Sixth Avenue UCC in Denver and Faith Nurture Associate for the Conference, will lead worship. 

Congregations Alive! 4 is planned and will be facilitated by a group of dedicated educators, pastors, and lay-leaders from around the Rocky Mountain Conference. While this is a Conference-sponsored event, all of the programming, coordination, catering, and so much more is handled by these incredible volunteers who care deeply about the vitality of our work.

Registration is now open—click the "Register Now" button below to sign up! More more details about the event, including workshop info, can be found in the Informational Packet linked above and below.

The per-day cost is $75, and it's $150 for all three days. However, there are multiple discounts available. If you register before January 1, 2019, you'll receive an early-bird discount of $10 (one day) or $25 (two or all three days).

And, if your church sends multiple people (must attend all three days), each member will receive an additional discount of $10 (if your church sends 2–3 members) or $20 (if your church sends 4 or more)!

Registration will close January 29, 2019; reserve your spot today!
