New home resource offered
GrowChristians.org is a new website on practicing faith at home. The site is based on a central question: How do we grow as Christians ourselves and help younger people – especially in our own families and churches – to grow as Christians too? Writers will cover topics like family prayer, reading the Bible, how to talk about the cross, using music, art, cooking, and more. It's a partnership of Forward Movement and Plainsong Farm.

Christian Formation Conference
June 12-16, 2017
Every day we experience the reality that we are living, not only in an era of change, but in a change of eras. We need a new vision of forming faith—an ecosystem of intergenerational relationships including faith experiences at church, family faith at home and missional formation to the unaffiliated. All of which is supported by digitally enabled and digitally connected faith formation to reach anyone, anywhere, anytime.
