Webinar Series - Designing Faith Formation For the Future
Thursday, November 11 - "Designing Hybrid Faith Formation" - 8:00-9:30 p.m. Eastern
                                         Presenter - Rev. Kathy Pittenger
                                         General Admission: $12    CENetwork Members: $10

For decades the church and faith formation have relied on in-person, fixed-time gatherings, events, and programming offered in physical spaces. The pandemic disrupted this default model, and pushed us to experiment with new models. Hybrid models of church and faith formation integrate in-person gatherings at church or in family groups or small group meetings with online content with a rich menu of faith forming experiences. Hybrid models hold together two important values: the importance of in-person relationships and faith forming experiences, and the importance of being responsive to the complexity of peoples lives and their religious-spiritual needs. Hybrid models expand faith formation opportunities for everyone, allowing leaders to become much more strategic about when, where, how, and for what we gather people because we can now integrate online with in-person faith forming. This webinar presents a variety of models for developing a hybrid future for lifelong faith formation in 2021 and beyond.

Thursday, February 3 - "Building Community and Relationships" - 8:00-9:30 p.m. Eastern
                                      Presenter - Jane Angha
                                      General Admission: $12    CENetwork Members: $10

The Building Community and Relationships webinar inspires and equips leaders in engaging children, youth, adults, and families as they return from a time of hybrid or at home learning. So many things have happened since the pandemic began and each of us and our ministries are forever changed. We will address those changes, discover what was successful and help create a path forward to welcome, offer hospitality, build relationships and create community. We will identify the scriptural and communal foundations of hospitality, assess current efforts and look for new opportunities as we reimagine our ministries and serve those in the faith community. The webinar will offer tools and resources to assess, innovate and design simple, effective and practical ways to create a community of welcome, hospitality and engagement that brings together everyone in the community. If we get this right, all our ministry efforts will be more successful and impactful from the start!

Thursday, March 10 - "Formation for Christian Living" - 8:00-9:30 p.m. Eastern
                                   Presenter - John Roberto
                                   General Admission: $12    CENetwork Members: $10

People of all ages today are asking the question How shall we live now? The pandemic has disrupted our lives in ways that we have only begun to name. We are searching anew for meaning and purpose  now in a post-pandemic world. What are the approaches, resources, people, and wisdom we need to address the How shall we live now? question? One approach is to focus on formation in Christian practices. We form people in the practices of the Christian way of life by drawing upon the wisdom of the Bible and Christian tradition, and connecting the practices to the signs of the times  the struggles, joys, needs, and hungers of people and communities today, and equipping people with the skills and ways to live the practice in their daily life. The webinar will present the vision and tools for designs for designing Christian practices formation programs. There will examples of curriculum approaches, program designs, and learning activities that parishes  can use.
