Building the household of God with children, youth and young adults

Take a minute to look back on your life. Who all have you lived with? In the earliest parts of our lives, we might live with parents or grandparents or other caring adults. Perhaps siblings.

‘This is just a change in where we are needed’

As churches, worshiping communities and their leaders continue to grapple with the spread of COVID-19, some are finding ways to live into their commitment to the Matthew 25 invitation.

‘We’re all in this together’

Remembering “the least of these” takes on greater significance during the coronavirus pandemic. With many Americans losing the ability to work, school being canceled for millions of children, and childcare centers being shuttered in many places, the challenges of people already living on or near the edge of society become magnified.
