When: Thursday, May 28, 2020, at 7:00 p.m.
Where: Online Zoom Meeting

For several years there has been growing concern among individuals, parents, congregations, and clergy that collectively we have been treating Sunday school as the ‘meat and potatoes’ of Christian formation, rather than the ‘dessert’.

What do you think?

  • Have Moms and Dads abdicated (consciously and subconsciously) their role in forming their children in the Christian faith to the church?
  • Has each generation been progressively less well-equipped to pass their faith along to their children because each generation has relied more and more on their church to form their children?

But take care and watch yourselves closely, so as neither to forget the things that your eyes have seen nor to let them slip from your mind all the days of your life; make them known to your children and your children’s children.

Deuteronomy 4:9

In our baptismal vows we are called to equip individuals and families in discipleship. Now that COVID-19 has arrived, we’ve been given a gift to reimagine ways we are interacting with people outside of church. If we look forward to when we’re “back to church” to return to our previous routine of Sunday school, we will be missing out on an opportunity to challenge and improve on the ways we used to do things.

What if we were to begin treating Sunday school as a dessert, and provide ways for parents to engage their families in Christian formation practices every day?

We’d love to start this conversation with you! Please register to join us in an online discussion about our collective Christian formation, and all ways we can bring it home, to be held at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 28th
