Christian Formation - Family Faith in Action


(replacing Enrichment Offerings)

Learning about our faith is the way we create a foundation.  However, actually putting our faith strong to work is how we come to ‘know’ Jesus on a personal level.  Our former Enrichment program is becoming Family Faith in Action events.  These events are designed to inform the participants about different non-profit organizations and complete a service project to benefit the speaker’s organization.  Pick one of the events to attend with your child(ren) throughout the year.  A schedule of opportunities will be emailed in October.

Events may include in-person inter-active speakers, or activities.  More events will be added during the year. For the most up-to-date schedule of Family Faith in Action events, watch your Parent newsletters. 

RSVP’s are required by five days prior to the event.
