Connecting during the Coronavirus

What we are offering in a time of Social Distancing

Journeying with you through the unknown…

Hello Friends,
The Vibrant Faith team considers it a privilege to be one of your trusted ministry partners. It’s now clear that your job and lives have changed dramatically in the last week; from gathering people physically, to gathering people in multiple digitals formats AND resourcing families to form faith at home.
First of all, please take a deep breath and know that you are the (clean) hand and feet of Jesus, but we cannot be a Savior.

We also know that the care and community of the Christian church is absolutely vital to your people– especially during times of crisis –We want to come alongside you with invaluable resources to help you form and shape the faith of God’s people at this time. Don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know what else you need. God has promised to be with you and guide you!

With Care, your Vibrant Faith Team, Trainers, and Coaches

Facilitator – John Roberto
Most churches have cancelled gathered faith formation programs and Sunday worship to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in their communities. But that doesn’t mean faith formation needs to stop. One way we can respond is to move faith formation online and into people’s homes and personal lives.

Join Catalyst

An ever-growing list of free or low cost resources are available on our Catalyst site. These are resources that you can use to develop online faith formation programming for all ages in your faith community.

Each week, we discuss a topic on Catalyst. Currently Catalyst members are sharing a wealth of ideas in how they are navigating Coronavirus in their own ministries. Join the conversation today!

Discount on the Visual Faith Database

After several churches have asked how they can use Visual Faith images online, we created a plan for leaders, churches, and ministry groups to use the Visual Faith Project for their online gatherings. In order to make the database images more accessible to everyone, we are selling database subscriptions for only $100 (reduced from $150). We are also providing a FREE 5-page overview of how these cards can be used in various online ministry settings. This document includes links to 32 free Visual Faith lessons/experiences to use.

 If you have questions or would like to connect us about these programs and services, email us at hello@vibrantfaith.org.
We look forward to talking to you about how we can help cultivate Vibrant Faith together in this unusual time.
