Leading by Heart: re-discovering your courage at Fountain Street Church


For the past two years, Connections Circles have been meeting for 4-week sessions around the theme of  "Change" - examining our fears and resistance to change as well as our strategies for whole-heartedly embracing change. This winter, as we head into yet another transition phase with new church leadership on the horizon, we offer two sets of 4-week Connections series with a particular focus on leadership.  


Using Brene Brown's book, "Dare to Lead" we will:

  • discover, explore and re-define what makes a good leader

  • discover our own leadership qualities in a Connections setting

  • discover another way to be intentional in community


What is Connections? Intentional small groups of 6 to 8 people who meet to experience a new way of speaking and listening to each other, creating the time and space for deeper and better conversation.


As part of The Learning Commons at FSC, the "Leading by Heart" sessions will be offered on Sunday mornings from 10:45 to 12:30 and on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:00 on the following dates:  

  • Session One: Sundays - Feb 2, 9, 16, 23   and again on March 1, 8, 15, 22. 

  • Session Two: Tuesdays - Feb 4, 11, 18, 25  and again on March 3, 10, 17, 24


We encourage choosing either Sunday or Tuesday; the material covered will be the same for both, but staying with and getting to know the same group of folks is the real benefit. For an 8-week experience, participants are welcome to take both the February and the March gatherings. We will be using experiential exercises in addition to "circle process," the heart of Connections.
