Children and Youth Faith Development

Gather the Spirit, Harvest the Power…

The past few years have been chaotic. We need community and purpose more than ever – hence this year’s faith development theme, “Gather the Spirit, Harvest the Power.” While we don’t know what the year will hold in terms of COVID, here are the building blocks of 2021’s fall & winter congregational life for children, youth, parents and other caregivers, and multi-generational age groups. 

The building blocks of our 2021-2022 children, youth, and multigenerational faith development program:
