Check out this list of ELCA-endorsed resources for Faith Formation in the home.

And check out this Milestones Ministry note about the Coronavirus.

Here is one of our members’ own compilation of fun, free resources for children and youth.  Or even if you’re just “young at heart.”

Here are some ONLINE GAMES to play on various online platforms.  Remember to get CREATIVE!!!

When gathering online, the challenges and interactions are a bit different than gathering face-to-face.   Think about sharing this document (or making it your own) regarding a Covenant of Presence.

2020 SESLYO Assembly Registration

We are indeed saddened that we had to cancel 2020 SESLYO Assembly, but we feel that we have made the right decision for the safety of our youth and for the prevention of the possible further spread of the coronavirus.  We are discerning a path forward.  Please keep one another in prayer.  + In Christ, Pr. Michael Jannett, Assistant to the Bishop for Formation and Communication
