Welcome to the NOVEMBER Children & Families Update!
In particular, let me highlight the upcoming Nov 10 Engaging all Generations webinar with Cory Seibel , encourage you to mark February 20 for the online Messy Church Conference (timed to suit multiple time zones) and provide one final reminder regarding the Nurture and Spiritual Guidance of Children intensive (Item 1). Remember, with all these opportunities being offered in via Zoom, they are now accessible to anyone from anywhere!
