Welcome! This is one of six pages about Christian formation for children and teens.
It's brought to you by the Christian Ed Collaboration network, who are dedicated to mutual support and sharing of resources and ideas.
Do you want to be connected with people in other Maine Episcopal churches who do ministry with kids and teens?
Quick things for new leaders, clergy and teachers to do:
1. Join the Christian Ed Collaboration Facebook Group. This is one of the ways that people connect. The Christian Ed Collaboration is a network of people (laypeople and clergy, volunteers and employees) from Episcopal congregations all over Maine, who are dedicated to sharing resources and ideas. We support and help one another.
2. Subscribe to the DioLog (our diocesan newsletter). That's where to find notices of Christian Ed Collaboration meetings, Maine Episcopal Youth Events, continuing education opportunities, etc.
4. You may want to join Faith Formation Connect, which is our online community and learning group for adults interested in faith formation/Christian Ed/spiritual growth for children and teens. This group also has a facebook group. For more information or to join the next cohort, contact Emily Keniston.
Do you want to visit other churches' Sunday Schools? Or drive to visit other leaders? We will reaimburse you for gas and coffee. Contact Katie Holicky or Jane Hartwell.
