Do you have kids? Do you love them? If so, you are qualified to come and explore what ways

we can empower their faith life. It is called Sticky Faith and it was developed by Dr. Kara Powell and Dr. Chap Clark out of the Fuller Youth Institute. It means just that; how can we make faith stick. “Sticky faith is a ministry framework and parenting philosophy baked by practical and

proven ideas to help develop long-term faith in teenagers.” The goal is to understand what it is parents can do now, while your kids are living with you, to prepare them to be an adult with an active faith life. It is never too early or too late to discover what is possible.

It will be four sessions long. There is a DVD to watch along with some discussion questions afterwards, with no right or wrong answer. The focus will be on four foundations proven to engage a lasting faith life; intergenerational relationships, whole gospel, partnership with families and a safe place to doubt.

I have done this curriculum before and it is amazing. It isn’t rocket science, it is simple things you can do, and start that day. The stories from the DVD lessons I still recall as I am rearing my own children. The premise is love. Your children will have an active faith life if you love, model and encourage theirs to grow. I would love for you to join me as we discover, and journey together through family life.

We will meet for four Sundays in October: 8th, 15th, (no class MEA weekend), 29th, and Nov. 5th. We will meet in the entrance by the couches.

God’s blessings.
