In the Bible, God often uses stories to tell us who he is. We are part of his story and it’s important for us to see our story in his story.
In this cohort, we will learn how how sharing stories:
Build relationships between generations.
Help us see how God is working in the faith of His people.
Create our identity in Christ by knowing who we are and whose we are.
Provides guardrails on how to respond to life’s joys and sadness.
Becoming a faith storytelling congregation involves learning how to shape, share and receive the faith stories of our community. Gather a group of people from your congregation who love stories and join us.
The Faith Formation team defines a cohort as a group of congregations that work together with a shared purpose (like strengthening their congregation’s faith formation practices) in order to provide each other with encouragement and support.
The Faith Formation team provides coaches to walk alongside these congregations as a listener, brainstormer, encourager and connector (e.g. connecting the congregation to resources, resource people and other congregations in the cohort whose trajectory is somewhat similar). Listen to past cohort members describe their experience in this seven-minute video.
