The Building Faith website has been making some great resources for faith formation lately and here's another one. This free webinar is a middle-of-the-night thing for us here but normally registering for webinars means you can access the material at your own leisure after it's done. Here's the details from them...
Free Webinar Wednesday January 18th
Building Faith is a contributor to a webinar series called Wisdom from the Field. This series is produced by the Center for the Ministry of Teaching, with the mission to bring inspiration and advice to ministry leaders.
Our next webinar - Planning for Lent - is Wednesday, January 18th at 3 p.m. , (US time eastern) hosted by Matthew Kozlowski. You are invited, and it's free! We'll be focusing on what churches and formation leaders do during Lent, sharing ideas and tips for how to meet your congregation where they are and journey with them through the season. We'll talk big picture thinking, and then move to practical ideas for Lenten programs and events.
