Clergy on the Arlington and Alexandria Districts should plan to participate in a Summer Learning session. 

District Superintendent Sarah Calvert, along with District Staff will facilitate conversation and reflection as clergy discuss the topic “What’s Next?” 

Summer learning sessions are designed to offer are an opportunity for clergy to connect, experience new learning and brainstorm ways to apply that learning to their congregation and Community. 

Please select the Summer Learning Session that works best for your schedule. When you register you will be asked to let us know what book from the Summer Book List you will have read in preparation for the meeting. (We encourage you to read more than one. We expect you to have completed the book you select at registration before you attend your Summer Learning Meeting.)

Group size will be limited to allow for good conversation. 

After you register for your Summer Learning Session please tell us your top 5 StrengthsFinder strengths. (Details on this can be found below.)
