Looking Ahead to Fall

Looking ahead to fall in always an exciting time.  The fall bursts with new possiblities and is a great to to reconnect with families and friends in the church.  Planning for this can be busy, stressful, and exciting in a normal year. 2020 is most definitely not a normal year!  The uncertainty of "what's around the bend" this fall adds another layer of stress to all.  However, planning ahead for virtual possibilities as well as in-person possibilities will alleviate some stress in the future.   Check out the articles by CENetwork board members, Teresa Kaldor and Carole Joyce as they look ahead to the fall and beyond.  There are other fun resources as well.... a Blessing of Devices (in addition to or instead of Blessing of the Backpacks), an online Sunday School option, and a tool for intergenerational discussion on congregational life and ministry.  These are all on our Learning Strategies for Intergenerational Ministry page!
