|Hello Faith Formation Families!
This page is packed with important information regarding Faith Formation for the fall-- please read carefully and in its entirety!
Faith Formation Format
Faith Formation will be hosted 'virtually' this fall. Class will be Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:30 am via Zoom.
First Day of Faith Formation
- Each week we will start with large group music time (led by Colleen) and a brief large group activity.
- From there we will divide the kids into several smaller breakout groups by age for an activity/discussion.
- Class will wrap up by 9:30am in time for the beginning of service at 9:40.
- We highly encourage families to participate in the worship service at home together. Children's messages and songs will continue to be a part of the church worship service this fall.
The first day of Faith Formation is Sunday, September 13. (Sorry for the typo on the attached registration form; unfortunately we can't change the 'published' forms as they're already posted!) This day and the following Sunday, September 20 will be a soft opening to our virtual Faith Formation programming. We will have engaging activities, music, and time for kids to connect with one another. Our goal is to get kids and families acquainted with the new format of Faith Formation via Zoom and to be able to make new friends and/or reconnect with one another. We will go over expectations as well as practice using the breakout rooms.

We will be distributing Take-Home Kits for Faith Formation, which will include the supplies your child will need for class. More information about distribution will be coming out in the next couple weeks.

Parent Volunteers Wanted!
We are looking for parent volunteers for our Sunday morning Zoom class time! Volunteers will help co-lead the breakout group activities (10-15 minutes of class time). Zoom training will be provided. Minimal class preparation will be needed, as we will be following a curriculum with guided discussions and activities.
