In 2009, we started a new Christian Formation program for all ages called F.I.R.E. (Family Intergenerational Religious Education). We’re very excited about it! It’s done in small groups and based out of homes. Groups decide when and in what homes they will meet to complete approximately 16 lessons during the school year. FIRE can be a substitute for regular Christian Formation classes.
Currently, we have 24 households (110 people), who are divided in 4 home groups. We have 7 households with couples with grown children, 22 couples with children living at home (children’s ages range from infants to 17 years of age), and 2 single households.
Each home group has one or more facilitators, who lead FIRE meetings. A facilitator formation session is offered. FIRE facilitators meet approximately five times a year with the Coordinator to review lessons and provide feedback. Contact the Coordinator to find out more about being a FIRE facilitator.
Registration and Fees
For those new to FIRE, to allow adequate time to form groups, we ask that you register as early as possible. The fee for FIRE is $75 per household.
