Resources for Responding to Covid-19

The Coronavirus pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of daily life for people across the globe. Phrases like “social distancing” have become commonplace. In the U.S., most schools and universities have closed; many businesses have temporarily shut their doors or will open for limited hours; and the CDC has recommended large gatherings should not take place at this time.

Local churches are also attempting to respond in appropriate ways, but many congregations have questions. The resources included below can assist your church as it seeks answers about this new reality.

Ministry with Children & Youth

In these times of social and physical distancing, we need to find new ways to imagine how we minister with children and youth. What are their spiritual needs? What kinds of faith formation can we offer from our homes? How can we continue to be “church” with the folks we serve even as the tools we’re used to using are unavailable to us. We’re planning a Round Table discussion to name the issues and concerns that you’re experiencing, and share some best practices. What’s working for you? How are the children and youth you lead weathering this? How are you responding, and what could you share that other leaders could learn from.
