The holidays are quickly approaching and with it a busyness for families. Churches are presented with a unique opportunity to connect with their communities. This is a wonderful time of year to provide parents with  resources to engage families in creating meaningful moments.

In this special holiday webinar, join us to hear from two ministry experts, Sam Luce and Lynne Howard. Luce will encourage leaders to pause and prepare their own hearts for this season so they can effectively serve the families in their community. Howard will discuss different ways to engage families using interactive ideas and experiences as Christmas draws nearer.

It’s easy to miss the awe and wonder of moments throughout our lives. This is especially true when we’re busy. Let’s connect and work together to focus our minds and hearts on helping families grow deeper in their love of Jesus this Christmas.

Topics we'll cover in this webinar:

    Connect with Your Communities

    Provide Resources for Parents

    Pause and Prepare
