Is your congregation struggling with declining attendance in Sunday school? Do you have a hard time finding, training and retaining qualified Sunday school teachers? Do you want to have a vibrant Christian education program for all ages, but feel unsure what to do or how to do it? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, this webinar might be for you!
We’ll take a look at the traditional Sunday school model and talk about why it’s not working well for many congregations. We’ll explore options for creating intergenerational models of faith formation that work well in many contexts. We’ll also discuss how to equip parents well so they can teach faith at home.

Who will benefit from this webinar? Pastors, children’s ministry staff and volunteers, and parents. This webinar is not just for Presbyterians!

TRACI SMITH is pastor of Northwood Presbyterian Church in San Antonio, Texas, and helps families and congregations nurture healthy faith development from cradle to grave.
