ECF has gathered ten resources for Advent.
By Melissa Rau
Melissa Rau writes our latest blog from the viewpoint of young parents who are interested in getting involved, but are ultimately turned off by their church. They are welcomed, but not welcome to change anything.
By Steve Follos
In this webinar, we will discuss the types of extension ministries that congregations are taking part in and the actions that church leaders need to consider when adding these types of arrangements.
Todos podemos estar de acuerdo en que queremos crecer espiritualmente. En su blog, Para Crecer Espiritualmente Necesitamos Ser Amados, Andres Herrera describe como para gente de un grupo minoritario este búsqueda puede ser aún más difícil.
We can all agree that we want to grow spiritually. In his blog, We Need to Be Loved to Grow Spiritually, Andres Herrera describes how for people from a minority group this search can be even more difficult.
By Lisa G. Fischbeck
Lisa Fischbeck talks about the Nicene Creed and its place in the liturgy. She explores how it might be a more spiritual declaration of faith if the Creed were chanted or sung instead of recited.
By Alan Bentrup
Simple actions like nodding hello to strangers while walking around the neighborhood can create a temporary connection that brings a shared closeness. Alan Bentrup explains his version of prayer-walking evangelism in his latest blog.
By Lindsey Harts
Lindsey Harts grew up doing “code red drills” where she hid from a pretend shooter. She feels that this common experience among millennials helped lead to the generation’s demand for radical authenticity. As she says, “in a world where shootings are live-streamed on the internet…you tend to have a very low tolerance for nonsense.”
By John Lynch
John Lynch was always expected to be a leader as a millennial. He thinks it’s because he continued to show up in church. Here he shares his impressions of leadership and a lesson that he learned from members of the oldest generation—Trust in God and pray.
By Sarah Townsend Leach
Attend this webinar to learn about creative ways to ask for feedback from the millennials in your church and out in the community in order to increase engagement, attendance, and giving.
