Off the Rails: a social justice pilgrimage around America

Off the Rails: a social justice pilgrimage around America with Gus & Wynanda Polman (Fleetwood CRC) encouraged all attendees to begin this year a little more attuned, responsible and faithful to respond to the cries for justice and mercy in Canada. We learned of the many “hostile walls” (Ephesians 4) that still divide people but also had our kingdom-imaginations stirred for the many ways those walls can and must come down. See below for the Banner article covering this event.

The Building Blocks of Faith Workshop

What if all the faith formation activities in your church were built on a common framework—a direction - that would help all the people in your church, from the youngest to the oldest, grow in faith together? One way to answer that question is to look through the lens of the Building Blocks of Faith.

Facilitated by Robert and Laura Keeley, participants were introduced to a four pillared framework for understanding the spiritual needs that all children, teens, and adults share. Understanding this framework can change the shape of how you think about faith formation in your church.

Robert Keeley is a Professor of Congregational and Ministries Studies at Calvin University and Laura Keeley is the director of Children's Ministry at 14th Street CRC in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a Faith Formation Catalyzer for the CRCNA.
