Connecting with Families and Children through the Summer

November 6, 2014
Lifelong Formation

Summer can be a time when we see our families and children in church a bit less. Here are some good (and inexpensive) ideas from Candle Press on how to stay connected through the summer months:

  • Build up your library of To Go units. Pick and choose ideas that you think would benefit families — sending an idea or two at a time in your e-mail messages to them.
  • Distribute Our Time – The Family Vacation packets to families heading out on a vacation. Each packet contains 16 suggestions on fun ways to engage children in conversations on Baptism, Eucharist and stories from the Bible.

You can view these materials and others on the Candle Press website.
