We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary! Thank you for your support!
The Lutheran Association of Christian Educators is a network of people who have a passion for Christian faith formation. Volunteers, staff and clergy will find resources and support to enrich their ministries through the benefits of membership. Christian educators of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America began this project. We are continuing to grow to include people from other denominations and backgrounds as well.

Thanks to our donors, we accomplished our goal for 2013!

Conversation from Facebook posted in October, 2013:
Q: Does anyone have any good activities for kids for All Saint's Day?
A:I had students bring in objects from loved ones that had passed away. Parents were invited. Prompted great discussion and kids learned a lot about family members.
A: Lots of ideas on Building Faith. Put All Saints in the search engine and you'll get plenty of articles. (www.buildfaith.org)
