FAITH PRACTICES PROJECT! - Faith Formation Ministries invites you to take a dive into transformational Christian practices (also called “spiritual disciplines”) with the Faith Practices Project. Each month find new resources for a particular practice at crcna.org/faithformation/practices. Join us as we start with the practice of Sabbath. We hope these resources will provide new insights for how to engage with God and open ourselves to God’s work in our hearts.

CRCNA PRAYER - INVITATION TO PRAY: We are a praying church. The Council of Delegates has asked all in the CRC to make this a year of prayer. The CRCNA Prayer Team invites you to join online in monthly Prayer Gatherings. We will meet virtually on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 11:00am EST for one hour of prayer led by the CRC Prayer Team.  Our goal is that this is not the only prayer opportunity for CRC members/groups. We would like this to be a grassroots effort that includes many more people than we can host in one session per month. We encourage you to lead your own prayer group at a time and place and in the language that works best for you. We will provide you with Prayer Guides and even set up a zoom meeting if needed.  If you would like to learn more about prayer opportunities in the CRC, please fill out this short Google Survey.  If you have questions or comments, please contact us by emailing Prayer@crcnapartners.org.

JOIN A GO LOCAL COHORT! - Resonate Global Mission ministry leaders are starting new Go Local: Essentials cohorts at the end of September and beginning of October. Go Local cohorts equip believers with postures and practices for joining God at work outside of the four walls of a church building. Go Local cohorts are available for individuals, churches, and pastors and church staff. Learn more and find a cohort that works with your schedule at www.resonateglobalmission.org/essentials
