If Wednesday is the new Sunday then what does that mean for Christian education?

Posted by Liz Perraud at

There was a day when schools and communities guarded Wednesday night as “church night.” Rarely were school sports practices or evening events scheduled. And then there wasn’t that day. Maybe the practice was more of a Bible Belt thing—most common in the south and midwest states. Growing up in the DC area I have no memory of Wednesday night reserved for religious reasons and it certainly wasn’t the case for my children. We all know about the gradual erosion of Sunday morning as “sacred” time. About 20 years ago, our soccer club ruled that no game would start prior to...

A World Filled with Thriving Christian Communities

“We started LOGOS with a ‘soft launch’—only doing two of the elements (Family Time and Bible Study) until we have more buy-in. We have very few children in our small church, but we want to build relationships between the children and the adults.  We had 50 people come to the first night…seven of which were children. There was a child at each table with adults surrounding that child and sharing and caring for them. My congregation has never been so excited about an event!  I've been getting phone calls all day about how much the members enjoyed everything!

By Teresa Goller, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Decatur, Illinois With mission in mind, our church recently hosted a combined LOGOS/Deacons spaghetti dinner to honor our city's First Responders.

Other children cleared tables and directed the guests to the dessert table. Meanwhile, junior and senior high youth delivered food to our seven...

LOGOS: Friends of All Ages

Posted by Liz Perraud at

October is Share Your Story month at GenOn. Lucy Neely of Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church in Columbia, Maryland shares… I have been attending Christ Memorial Presbyterian for about three years. I remember the first time I visited CMPC with my family. I immediately knew that this was the church I would call home. My family wanted to visit a few more churches before becoming members just to see if we could find anything better, but I knew that wasn’t possible. Now, after being here three years this church has given me some of the best friends I could ever ask...

LOGOS: Intergenerational connectedness

Posted by Liz Perraud at

October is Share Your Story Month at GenOn. Rev. Suzanne Stout of First Christian Church of Des Moines, Iowa shares... Last year a couple of our high school youth began volunteering in our elementary program of LOGOS and on our kitchen crew for the hour before the high school program begins each week. Our oldest volunteer is in his 90s, and comes faithfully each week. He attends our training sessions, and seeks to get to know the families and the children throughout the year. We re-aligned our kitchen jobs to better fit the stamina of our older members, and now have...
