Here at Living Faith Church, we are keen to find ways to help our children and our families experience what it looks like to follow Jesus. While it is important to learn about Jesus, we recognise that his own disciples developed their faith not only by listening to Jesus and his Godly wisdom, but by watching and copying the things He did.
Right now, we're looking at Here 2 Stay, and using their framework and resources to inform our process. Here 2 Stay is aware of how the world has changed, and continues to change, and looks to provide us with ways to keep engaging with young people and young families. Our hope is that we can use these ideas and resources to make our Church a place where young families and young people can find support, mentorship, community, and above all, God.
Just like the disciples, we are all a work in progress. We discover new ways in which to walk in Jesus' footsteps as we go along. There are a number of important aspects to this – learning to love and know God, learning to love and know one another, learning to serve the world in his name. We do this through active participation and worship. We do this through spending time together as families. We do this through finding ways to love our neighbours, our community, and the world.
