If you and your small membership church feel hopeless because one or more of the following has happened...

  • Your community has lost people.
  • The school closed.
  • Businesses on main street are closing.
  • Church attendance is low.
  • Sunday morning children are riding bikes and not attending church.
  • You do not recognize many people around you community.
  • You wish we could return to yesteryear.


  • You are a small membership church looking for hope.
  • Believe God still has a purpose for your church.
  • You believe children of all ages need God’s love and grace in their lives.
  • Despite all the problems your church is an important part of your community.

We have a workshop just for you!
