Introductory Activity

If you'd like to understand more about how your whole congregation defines and experiences faith formation, we invite you to take part in an activity to find out—and we'll take care of creating a word cloud just from your community’s answers.

Thanks to all who participated! We are sharing a gallery of word clouds from participating congregations. Check out the gallery to see what some congregations heard when they ask all ages "What does our church teach/learn?"

We are exploring ways to invite more religious professionals to use this activity in their congregations.
