This week (Aug 10) and next our NT-NL Synod, ELCA Conferencia Latina is conducting an online bilingual vacation bible school. 35 children from multiple congregations have gone a la granja for learning and faith formation.
Not sure but I bet this is probably the first bilingual vacation bible school online in the ELCA. Another innovation in our synod as our leaders adapt and learn. Part of our commitment is to make our Christian Education programming and faith formation multi-lingual and cultural. In 2019 our Briarwood Fall Middle School retreat hosted over 60 youth, 40% were youth from Latinx contexts. This is a priority and our Conferencia Latina leaders are making it happen. Grateful for their work. Gracias a todos. #NTNL #EnMisionJuntos
