As we recast the net of faith formation together here are some of our current projects...
In the fall of 2016we surveyed the ministries of the Eastern North Dakota Synod about the faith formation ministries that they offered. Questions centered around Sunday School, Confirmation & Adult Faith Formation. You can find the results of that survey and the contact information of participants here on this website.
On this website there is a section called "The Promises". On those pages we will curating life-long faith formation resources, tools, books, videos, curriculum, web links, etc. for all ages. The resources are divided up by the 5 Baptismal Promises from the Affirmation of Baptism Service in the ELW. If you have suggestions of resources please contact us. We are also curating a Pinterest page with all sorts of ideas and resources.
We are not called to do ministry alone. We are called to travel on the road together as a synod. Faith Formation Leaders, whether volunteer or paid change often and so we want to help leaders and ministries in our synod stay connected and we want to know who the leaders are. We are creating a database of leaders/ministries. I you are not already are part of the network or there have been changes or additions in Faith Formation Leaders at your church, please sign up. We also have a Facebook group where leaders can interact with one another. Please share ideas and questions on the Facebook group.
There are several great opportunities for people of all ages offered throughout our synod & region. We want to support the dissemination of information about these opportunities. A list of events is on our synod's website. If you have an event to share please contact us and we will pass it on.
