“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger” Proverbs 15:1(NIV)
You are invited:
to gather with church office managers, administrators and secretaries, active and retired, at Craigville Retreat Center
For over 50 years, Ecumenical Office Managers, Administrators and Secretaries (“EO:MAS”) have gathered annually for professional development, to share insights and offer help with this demanding yet rewarding calling. At this year’s gathering we will be learning how to communicate effectively within our workplace as well as how to resolve conflicts. We will also indulge in some of our favorite activities:
Introductions, putting names to the faces old and new
A Yankee Swap
Networking; sharing ideas and answering questions
Free time; go to the beach, shopping or what ever
Closing Worship with communion.
There will be sessions addressing various aspects of our topic. We will continue our outreach as we bring donated items to help the community. Items requested for donation will be included in your confirmation letter. The monetary collection from our closing worship will go to a charity chosen by the group.
We invite you to join us this year. We hope you can come for an informative and fun-filled time as we communicate positively.
