COVID-19 has created opportunities to do ministry in new and different ways. Many local churches also may have new financial challenges. This grant is intended to provide small grants to support local churches as they re-imagine faith formation with children, youth, and adults. This is a one-time grant per church of a maximum of $250. Grants may be used for things like materials, postage to send faith formation materials home, virtual VBS supplies, digital curriculum, etc. that support or enhance creative ministry. Grants will be reviewed as they are received. Questions may be directed to Rev. Kathy Pittenger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517.897.4483.
