CONGREGATIONAL RENEWAL

CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Statistically, if we wait until after high school, they will be forever lost. In a denomination that has lost one million in Sunday School, what ELCA churches are providing a foundation from cradle to high school that will last as lifetime for our children and youth?
