Church As Improv - February 27th. 9am-2pm
Put Saturday, February 27 on your calendar for a fabulously fun, informative, and refreshing day at Carroll University.
The Presbytery of Milwaukee will experience “Church As Improv” led by Bob Orvis from Milwaukee’s Comedy Sportz and Ashley Goff, Pastor for Spiritual Formation at Church of the Pilgrims (Washington, D.C.). The day will begin at 9:00 a.m. and run until 2:00 with lunch provided (for a reasonable cost).
You’ll see ministers put in situations that make them look silly, and have a chance to laugh at yourself while learning something worthwhile. Everyone (all ages) welcome!
“Improv” often refers to unscripted comedy based on a premise or awkward situation. But every church needs improv too, since it requires paying attention and responding to what is happening in the moment. Doing "Church as Improv” can lead to new thought patterns, a light and joyous spirit, spontaneous creation, trust and awareness … even better meetings! Like everything else we do as church, good “improv” involves working together. With so many things changing in church and the world, having good improv skills is crucial.
So come for the laughs … and to see what we can learn.
