Wondering what Advent will sound like this year?
Looking for ways to weave participatory singing and movement into online worship and community gatherings?
We'll explore these questions in a 75-minute Advent Worship Webinar focused on music for this season of waiting and wondering. A creative team of liturgists and song leaders in the MMC community will weave together songs, worship experiences, and collective brainstorming to help us listen and respond to sacred text, rooted in our individual, national, and global contexts. It's an excellent way to jumpstart your relationship with themes and readings for the Advent season.
Suggested donation for the webinar is $50. After the event, participants will receive a link to a recording (to share with your planning team or worship committee), as well as a PDF with printed resources.

We look forward to gathering for our three-day Virtual Fall Retreat, a time to rest, restore, and to give and return thanks. Together, we'll experience participatory learning and singing, sharing music from a variety of traditions, and reflecting on leadership practices useful in a range of contexts, virtually and in-person, from devotional spaces to choir rehearsal to protest and movement spaces.
In this co-learning space, we'll explore what this change of seasons, in this changing world, asks of us, noticing the way our bodies and voices are present when we learn through thoughtful modeling and generous invitation.
REGISTER HERE!We'll begin and end each day by awakening our voices and spirits in song. We'll burrow into Core Sessions led by MMC presenters and guests. And in the afternoons, we'll use an Open Source model to center the questions, needs, and dreams of the group. You are welcome to opt in or out as your schedule, focus, and/or time zone require.
Here's the daily schedule:
- Morning Singing/Centering and Fellowship (8:00-9:00 a.m. EDT; a second offering at the same time MDT)
- Core Sessions - large-group learning time (1:00-2:30 pm EDT)
- Afternoon Open Source Conversations - we'll invite the burning questions, curiosity, and interests of the group to shape mid-afternoon learning, singing, and conversations spaces (Times TBD)
- Evening Singing/Centering and Fellowship (7:00-8:00 p.m. EDT)
- Topic-driven 'pop-up' groups are welcome to gather around shared interests and needs
