The Lutheran Association of Christian Educators is a network of people who have a passion for Christian faith formation. We are pleased to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year. 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.

Conversation from Facebook:
Q: We have started a special needs ministry and we will be having our first worship experience for the special needs children and their families for Easter. Has anyone done this before or have any resources for this?
A:I highly recommend "Rhythms of Grace" by Audrey Scanlan. A LOT of practical helps along with very specific services. I think every congregation should read this book and institute some of their suggestions into their worship space for every service whether they think they have children with special needs or not. It is not that difficult and would help in engaging all children in worship.
A: We offer special needs childcare during worship and last spring 3 of our children had their first communion. It was so moving. So now we are moving into special worship for the families. We also have a dinner once a month for the families and then have a speaker for the parents and childcare for the kids.
