There are various faith formation opportunities and formats: DIY (asynchronous) and online. Our winter schedule was shaped by the feedback and information we received throughout the fall. Key to linking church and home is our new online platform, CONNECT—a one-stop-shop for classes, community, and meaningful content. The purpose of Children and Family Ministry is to help families develop authentic relationships with God and others, engage with church rituals and traditions, make faith relevant to daily life, and find Christ’s comfort and HOPE—even in the midst of a pandemic This winter we will continue to grow in faith and develop community in a safe way. We’re here to help, please contact Christine Hides or Greta Connor for more information or advise. Registration links are below.
