Check out the several opportunities in which youth and adults can connect in learning, service and overall faith formation.
Three training sessions in a location near you will include an overview of what it means to be about faith formation in a missional age. We will open discussion on the challenges we all face when doing ministry in this era. What are those challenges? What is the opportunity? What are your fears and anxieties? What are your joys? We will seek the collective wisdom of the group on ways we can faithfully move forward and continue to support one another in our work. ALL are welcome, from staff to volunteers to committee members to Sunday School teachers. Be part of the conversation! Click here for more information and to register
