Lower Susquehanna Synod Center for Faith Formation

We never stop learning! Our relationship with God in Christ grows as we grow in our understanding of God’s Word. So while faith formation in our synod is not limited to children and youth, this section of the website includes resources and links to events deigned to assist the congregational youthworker, pastor or Christian education team and teachers to more faithfully and effectively provide faith formation for those in the first-third of life.

Our new Center for Faith Formation, a partnership ministry of the synod Resource Network and synod Office for Children, Youth & Family Ministry, have developed a number of opportunities for leaders and volunteers to gather for renewal, continuing ed and networking.

  • CAFÉ’s: 90-minute gatherings with a focused topic and time for conversation and networking among ministry peers
  • Signature Events: half-day events with a keynote presenter, workshops by practitioners, and focused coaching to help you apply the learning’s on your congregational setting

Plus, we’ll offer you registration information for seminars across the spectrum of ecumenical partners. We believe at a time when congregations cannot afford to financially support continuing education for volunteers and Christian educators the way they did a decade ago, that we need to offer affordable and convenient options for broadening the knowledge of your dedicated congregational teaching teams.

Along with a dedicated group of volunteers who comprise our Learning Ministries Team, the synod Resource Café houses a variety of printed and electronic resources available to loan to congregations. Our Resource Café hours are 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM, every weekday from September through May, and on Mondays-Thursdays during the summer months. In addition, look for curriculum and web links to videos and other resources posted to this site.

“Nothing happens
without a leader.”

“Kids’ faith mirrors parents’
faith. Kids in the congregation
will reflect the adults in the congregation.
Do we practice the kind of faith we want
young people to have?”
