Over the last year, faith communities have discovered different ways to keep people connected, even while forced to be physically-distant. In our congregation, one way that groups have stayed connected with one another is through the delivering of a “porch drop.”
Two weeks ago, I wrote a blog post questioning whether or not kids should be forced to attend church. The feedback was overwhelmingly in favor of taking kids to church, for a variety of reasons. If we say we want kids to come to church, then stop engaging them, our actions don’t match up with our words. Just what are we prepared to do to keep kids, teens, and young adults in church?
