Rev. Cindy Yanchury

All those who serve in the ministry of faith formation need the opportunity to hear about new ideas, best practices, what works and what doesn't and a time for deepening their connection with God and with others who share in a passion for disciplining in the way of Jesus. Minnesota Christians Enganged in Faith Formation (CEF) is that place.

Join CEF for this opportunity to learn from DeDe Reilly. DeDe will be sharing with us some of her best ideas for summer ministry with kids. These ideas will work in any size church. Come join us! Refreshments will be served.

You may attend in person at Eden Prairie UMC for $5, or via webinar for free. For the webinar, email to RSVP and get the login info.
