Resources for At Home

While all of the above ideas include a variety of resources for encouraging and equipping people to continue the practices at home, we especially want to draw your attention to these:  

It was such a joy for Katie Ritsema-Roelofs and I to curate these resources for you on behalf of Worship Ministries and Faith Formation Ministries. We’d love to hear how you use them and also learn about the other ways in which you’re exploring faith practices with your congregation. Let us know at [email protected] or [email protected]

PS: We hosted a webinar as a way to introduce this series of ideas. You can view the recording here: Design an Interactive Series on the Faith Practices.
