Resources for Children, Youth and Families

Resources for Children, Youth and Families

On March 19, Karen Ziel discussed Faith Formation resources during the weekly Bridge Conference Minister update. Her piece begins at about the 24 minute mark - watch here.

Children are impacted by moments like these.  Even if they aren’t watching the news they’re picking it up.  And they’re picking up the stress of their parents, teachers, family and classmates.  You can do a lot to reduce their stress and remove their fears.  You’ll find more guidance for children and teens during times of disaster and trauma at our Disaster Resource pages

Here you'll find a weekly listing of the Top 3 Resources we've discovered in each of 4 categories related to Faith Formation and Discipleship during a time of physical distancing for churches.  Each underlined heading is a link to a full page of all resources we've curated and will continue to curate during these times.

Grief - We recognize that in this time of pandemic and loss, grief support is especially valuable. That is why you can find curated lists of materials and links to sites supporting grief work locally and nationally, here. You may also visit this page on our SNEUCC website where you'll find additional resources for support and information. 

Churches Respond to the Scourge of Racism- We further recognize that with all that is going on in our nation, people of faith want to be empowered to bring the good news and to do something positive to nurture a generation of children who will stem the tide of racism.  Here is a curated list of resources to proactively assist families to make that first step in this time.
