CHILDREN, YOUTH and FAMILY
G.I.F.T. - Growing in Faith Together
In regular times, we meet at 9:15am on Sunday's in Pastor Amie’s office for 30 mins of learning together.
We use the FAITH5 (Faith Acts In The Home) steps: Share, Read, Talk, Pray and Bless. This method of learning enriches communication, deepens understanding and promotes faithful relationships between parents and children.
In COVID-19 times, we are attempting several “touch-points” with our children and families. Pastor Amie is recording Bedtime Bible Stories and posting them on the Salem YouTube Channel. “The Story” bible trading cards are being sent home for children to use during our 31 week sermon series based on “The Story,” a condensed and chronological Bible. Families are encouraged to read “The Story” chapters in the children’s bible version. And occasional videos and suggested activities are being emailed to families to do during this time of "staying at home.”
Children’s sermons are offered
at every in-person and ZOOM
For the safety of campers and staff, Day and Beach camps through El Camino Pines and Luther Glen Farm have been cancelled, but you can still enjoy a little camp magic! LRCC is offering a Children's Message and Camp Song based on the ELCA Lectionary Year A calendar every week so your church members can experience the joy of camp from their home. For the foreseeable future, LRCC will continue creating virtual campfires.
When the camps are able to open, they will offer new events and retreats for all ages - children, teens, young adults and adults...stay tuned!
If you are able, you can help out LRCC with a donation.
