7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern
Leader: Ivy Beckwith
This webinar will explore the 3 areas of church life that have direct impact on the faith formation of children and youth: Family Engagement, Faith Community Life, and Worship. We’ll explore how churches can help families faithfully form their children, provide the characteristics of a positive faith forming community, and talk about how the meaningful inclusion of children and youth in corporate worship contributes to positive faith formation.
