Faith Formation for Families and Children

Faith Formation for Families and Children

underconstruction.jpgThe annual All Church retreat sponsored by Christ Church in Summit, NJ is a model for any church looking to build those important faith forming cross generational relationships. Held each fall in the quaint seaside community of Ocean Grove, NJ – members and friends of all ages and stages in life come together for a weekend of fun, friendship, and an opportunity to meet God together.
You, your family, and others from your church are invited to come and join with Christ Church to experience this retreat and, then, through structured reflection and discussion take home concrete ideas on how to replicate this model in your own church community.

Come participate in this Inspiring Model of Ministry sponsored by the Faith Formation team of the United Church of Christ September 30 - October 2!
