Faith Practices Project, Christian Reformed Church NA
If you’re longing for a deeper, more life-giving faith, join us for a dive into transformational Christian practices. Are you feeling worn out, discouraged, or ready for something new? You’ve come to the right place. The Faith Practices Project, hosted by Faith Formation Ministries, invites you to refresh your spirit by experimenting with life-giving spiritual disciplines. Beginning in September 2020, each month we’ll release a new set of resources focusing on one of twelve faith practices. For each practice you’ll find creative ideas for individual and communal practices, Scripture passages to read, a helpful intro article, thought or discussion questions, and a list of resources for going deeper.

Historically, spiritual disciplines have included practices like reading the Bible, prayer, fasting, silence, solitude, and service. But the range of faith-formative practices actually encompasses a much larger set of activities.

Faith Practices, Pilgrim Press
Faith Practices is a set of versatile, all-encompassing resources designed to equip their members for lives of faith. Faith Practices' non-linear, activities-based approach can be used with a wide variety of age groups or church settings. The sessions and practices for each faith practice were developed by a team of UCC writers from various churches across the country. The role of the leader in Faith Practices is to be a pilgrim guide. A leader does not need to be an "expert" on the particular faith practice being explored, but is someone who can honor the capacity of all participants to be interpreters of the faith and of faith stories. Faith Practices is designed to be a "living curriculum" that invigorates congregational life in worship, learning, and serving.
