Lent. 40 days that lead us toward Easter. 40 days of giving, prayer, penance, and perhaps fasting as we journey toward the cross. 40 days when we, as disciples, wander in the desert along side Jesus.
Join us in the wilderness this Lent on Wednesdays beginning Ash Wednesday and continuing through Holy Week. Meetups will happen at 2:00 p.m. EST.

This Webinar will explore how to engage more of the congregation in the faith development of youth, how to get parents more involved, and how to follow up on summer trips (and other intensive experiences) through the rest of the year.

Yong people are constantly watching TV, movies, gaming, or listening to music. How often do they see God in the media they consume? God is ever-present and that includes when we seek entertainment.
