Basics of Christian Education
Designed to help pastors and worship planners integrate four of the most important biblical themes into worship, each volume provides complete services for a number of different scripture passages. These resources can be used in conjunction with the newBible Quest curriculum or in other worship contexts, including churches that follow the lectionary.
The services, written by pastors and lay leaders from several denominations, feature a call to worship, an opening prayer, a prayer of confession, wordsof assurance, prayers of the people, a children’s sermon, two sermon starters, an offering meditation, an offering prayer, a communion meditation, and a benediction.
Nearly a decade after that classic study, congregations are still struggling with what quality Christian education is and how to build and maintain it.
In this concise and easy-to-use guide, Karen Tye offers practical help, addressing the vital areas that need attention when planning for and building a Christian education program.
Questions and exercises at the end of each chapter help pastors, Christian educators, seminary students, and laity apply the information to their own unique setting, building on the basics to renew and transform Christian education.
