Join us in Prayer

Almighty God, heavenly Father, you have entrusted us with the joy and care of children. Give us calm strength and patient wisdom as we bring them up, that we may teach them to love whatever is just and true and good, following the example of our savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Book of Common Prayer
School has begun, and, whether your classroom is in your dining room or at your school, we know it will be a good year!

And, after the first week or two of school, let’s give those backpacks and devices an All Saints Blessing! Bring them to the 9 am service this Sunday (along with your chair or blanket for your family) for Morning Prayer with a children’s sermon. Don’t forget to wear your mask and practice social distancing!

Kid Superintendent says it best!
Introducing… Sunday Jam

We are excited to introduce our new Christian Formation program, Sunday Jam, which is similar to our VBS To Go Kits. Each month we’ll send home four lessons complete with crafts and suggested videos for children ages 3-5th grade. Parents can email christianed@all-saintsrichmond.org to order kits for their kids. Pick-ups will be at the 9 am service on Oct. 4 or Monday, Oct. 5th at 5 pm. Please tell us your child’s name and age when reserving a kit.
An Exciting New Opportunity for Family Learning
Brought to you by ChurchNext and FORMA, Episcopal Formation Organizations
Even if we can’t physically worship and learn together, we can still draw closer to Jesus Christ.

That’s the aim of a new learning experience called “This is NOT Sunday School.” This free, weekly online resource is intergenerational, making it a perfect tool for families and people of all ages.

“Being away from church doesn’t mean we can’t continue learning about God at home,” said Melissa Rau ECF’s Staff Liaison to Forma and co-organizer of This is NOT Sunday School, “This is a dynamic opportunity for families to grow together in faith, especially around this terrific, weekly offering.”

This is NOT Sunday School is coming from the Faith@Home team, which is a collaboration between Forma and Forward Movement to offer free Christian learning resources.

Free sessions of This is NOT Sunday School will launch weekly starting September 16, and you can sign up on the ChurchNext website today. Each week’s session features video teaching by a professional from the Christian formation network, Forma, as well as downloadable lessons and readings.

Sessions use Forward Movement’s Exploring the Bible curriculum, which includes many of the most famous stories in the Bible. It’s part of Forward Movement’s free Living Discipleship series for all children, youth, and adults, available in English and Spanish.

The sessions are hosted through the online learning platform of ChurchNext, a leader in offering online Christian formation. “We’re excited to develop and share this much-needed resource,” said Chris Yaw, founder of ChurchNext. “Families can pick the time and space that works for them to come together, learn about the Bible and one another, and draw closer to Jesus Christ.”
