Sunday LIFT prior to COVID restrictions. Rachel E. Núñez Director of Faith Formation Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Akron, OH After the initial shut-down and following the Easter season and working week-to-week with individual story and faith formation themes, I reintroduced Sunday LIFT as a weekly offering for Intergenerational Faith Formation.

Church leaders hoped LIFT would help get more people involved outside of their worship services and usual Sunday school classes. And it did! Director of Christian Education and the Arts Suzanne Feltner shared, “Many said it was a wonderful time of fellowship and that the activities engaged people of all ages.” Suzanne also said that the curriculum was easy to follow and offered things some people would not normally do, like make a rain gauge, discuss scripture...
