Encouraging Faith at Home
Parents have the biggest impact on growing faith in their children. How can Children’s Ministry leaders support and encourage our families? Using the ‘Faith at Home’ course developed in 2022 at St. Paul’s Bloor Street, I will share some simple ideas to help parents grow faith in their children. The course material is accessible for all families, and includes family discipleship, reading the bible, prayer, serving together, and the power of ritual. The course was originally presented in an online format.
