May 2020 – Sunday Online Children’s Formation with Teacher Kari Moore

At St. David’s, we are called to support families’ formation, worship, and daily lives, and to nurture children’s growing faith through wonder, learning, prayer, and play. In uncertain times, we realize how much we need community. We may not be together in person, but continue to connect with friends and feed our spiritual formation online. We are learning as we go, and we are better together.

Stay up-to-date by joining our Children and Families Facebook group.

Children’s Formation Resources

Your children’s regular Sunday teachers have written online materials—Catechesis of the Good Shepherd’s “Notes from the Atrium” and Junior Journeys’ “Sunday School in a Box”—to support your continued family formation at home. Download resources here! If you are not on Facebook, please e-mail Amanda Wischkaemper for links and files.

Volunteer with us!

We are always in need of enthusiastic volunteers to staff our many programs—in-person on online. In this stay-at-home time, we welcome your assistance with our upcoming Virtual Vacation Bible School (VVBS), or recording lessons/stories for weekly offerings.
