After a few months in my position as Family Director, I have realized one thing that is lacking in some churches today is a fluid curriculum and pathway for the spiritual development of children. At our church we have two main events for children: Bibles for 3rd grade students and confirmation for 8th grade students. These two events are good but families need more than this.
For the past few months I have been reading and studying what other churches do in the way of a roadmap for the spiritual development of children and youth. I have taken these ideas and morphed them into a format that fits our context at First Presbyterian.
Check my post tomorrow to see what this roadmap looks like!
