Programs of Convocation


Circle of Practice

Sunday evening - 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Currently the program called A Circle of Practice meets between
7:00 and 9:00 p.m. under the leadership of John and Colette Hoff. Programs express a carefully designed curriculum covering:

  •  Self-understanding and development.
  •  Understanding relationships and how to work with them.
  •  Learning to join; learning to serveómaking social contribution.

Program workshops and retreats are often held at Sahale Learning Center on the Kitsap Peninsula.

The program of watchcare focuses on the whole of life. Members and friends of Convocation are arranged in supportive groupings to enable mutual care. Thus watchcare speaks not only of the profession services of our pastors, who supervise the program, but also provides an enriched experience of service through intentional caring for each other. Watchcare is also offered by the staff and congregation to people in the Seattle area. As a parish we welcome the opportunity to engage and help people in need of: humane and spiritual support. These watchcare services are especially needed and appreciated during times of stress and illness.
