Leaders: Elizabeth Christie, Debbie Kolacki, Karen Smith

 The global pandemic has radically changed how we meet and connect for worship and education. Even as churches are resuming in-person activities, many of the faithful are still looking for online and hybrid offerings. Join us to consider how we can continue to offer spiritual formation for all ages in an ever changing world. This is a workshop in three parts. We will begin with a presentation from Elizabeth Christie and PRC educators on tools and practices for this moment. Then, we’ll break off into 3 small groups to brainstorm and discuss our particular contexts. Finally, PRC subscribers will have the opportunity to join a cohort led by Elizabeth for more tools and support.

Elizabeth Christie has worked in children’s and family ministries for over two decades. In addition to being a consultant here at PRC, she is currently serving as the director of children, youth, and family ministries at a small urban congregation in eastern Pennsylvania. She has worked with large, medium, and small congregations in a variety of settings, with much of her time having been spent in the NYC area. She and her husband recently traded their commuter lifestyle for a 200 year old farmhouse and muckboots, and are enjoying discovering the joys of country living alongside their seven children.
