We all know the importance of early childhood reading, of learning science, art, and even sports. Spiritual formation can be just as critical. Life has natural ups and downs, hard truths and harder questions. We can give children places to go with these questions, a community of support, and a supportive and loving God who walks among us. Spiritual formation offers a lifetime of being able to breathe.

On these pages, you’ll find resources for families and churches as you offer healthy spiritual nurture and care.
