Gloria Anderson uses the Taking Faith Home Rituals and Traditions for the Third Sunday/Week in Lent. The Taking Faith Home during Lent has been teaching how to pray using the ACTS acronym: Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication. This week, the focus is on the “T” in ACTS, Thanksgiving.
Each week in our congregation, I give a Taking Faith Home Message following the Gospel reading. Children are invited forward to join me. The message shared is intended to give suggestions for engaging in faith talk in the home during the week based on the scripture readings. While we are unable to gather in our faith communities, I will continue to post a message on Sundays during Lent.
Each week in the congregation, Debbie Streucher gives a Taking Faith Home Message following the Gospel reading. Children are invited forward to join her. Since the congregation is not able to meet face to face, she is recording them to share or use for ideas. The message shared is intended to give suggestions for engaging in faith talk in the home during the week based on the scripture readings. This message is for Palm Sunday.
Milestones Ministry provides a faith milestone as a marker along life’s journey that says, “This is something important, and God is here, too.” It is a faith formation practice for both home and congregation that helps all generations recognize God’s presence in everyday life. This video introduces you to the design of Milestones Ministry Modules and Moments.

A faith milestone moment is a time when we recognize God in the moment in our daily lives. Getting a Driver’s license, losing a tooth, learning to ride a bike, and retirement are just a few examples. Debbie Streicher, Co-Director at Milestones Ministry, describes a the steps one can take to write their own milestone celebrations.
