Church leaders, are you looking for a way to support families and households in faith formation at home? We have an offer of FREE resources to support at-home faith formation with younger children!
The Presbyterian Mission Agency is announcing a way to support faith communities in equipping households to engage in faith formation from home. We are using an endowment made possible by generous donors to help you receive a few resources through our partner, Presbyterian Publishing Corporation. These resources are specifically selected to help households with younger children engage in Scripture and storybooks that highlight the vision of being a Matthew 25 faith community in the PC(USA). We consider households to include parents and children, grandparents and children, foster families, and even community outreach households. Think creatively about how you can reach young children and their guardians.
We have English, Spanish, and Korean book bundle options. You may choose any or all.

Please complete the survey below to tell us about your faith community. We will review the surveys every 2 weeks beginning July 16th until all the funding has been used. You will receive an email informing you of your selection. Each faith community that is approved to receive these resources will receive 10 copies of each book in that bundle/s. They are intended to be distributed directly to the households or to be set up as a lending library.
We will be following up the shipment of Bibles and books with resources and ideas on how to use them in homes, including a webinar this fall to help you further equip households for at-home faith formation. Those resources will be emailed to the requester email in the survey.
Although any community or church with need is encouraged to fill this out, we will prioritize smaller congregations and communities depending on the demand and funds available. Resources will be shipped directly to the address that you provide in this survey. Larger congregations may be held until the end to ensure funding of smaller congregations.
