The eight-week program invites you to creatively integrate Miracles into your congregation’s religious education and programmatic calendar in a variety of ways, such as:
- Offer Miracles in summer, when weekly attendance tends to dip. The sessions would provide a vibrant, interesting experience for visitors who are congregation-shopping during the summer months.
- Offer the program for family-based or multigenerational groups as a supplement to regular religious education programming at an alternate time. If you typically provide religious education on Sunday mornings, experiment with a Thursday or Wednesday evening. Perhaps include a shared meal with one or more sessions. Miracles can be paired with a small group ministry or Evensong program for a great experiment in supplemental programming.
- Offer Miracles for elementary-age participants as part of your normal Sunday morning religious education program. Miracles can be an engaging fall opener, getting people excited and engaged for the year, or a fresh program to offset a springtime lag in attendance.
- Engage a multigenerational or wide age span group in the Miracles Faith in Action activities. Most of the Faith in Action projects suggested in the sessions can provide programming for several meetings linked to the Miracles program.
A blend of these ideas or your own adaptation of the program may fit your congregation perfectly. Use Miracles in the way that best optimizes the talents, interests, and enthusiasm of your community.
