Welcome!  This is one of six pages about Christian formation for children and teens.

It's brought to you by the Christian Ed Collaboration network, who are dedicated to mutual support and sharing of resources and ideas. 

Do you want to be connected with people in other Maine Episcopal churches who do ministry with kids and teens?

 

Three quick things for new leaders, clergy and teachers to do:

1. Join the Christian Ed Collaboration Facebook Group.  This is one of the ways that people connect.  The Christian Ed Collaboration is a network of people (laypeople and clergy, volunteers and employees) from Episcopal congregations all over Maine, who are dedicated to sharing resources and ideas.  We support and help one another.

2. Subscribe to the DioLog (our diocesan newsletter).  That's where to find notices of Christian Ed Collaboration meetings, Maine Episcopal Youth Events, continuing education opportunities, etc.

3. Email Katie Holicky, the Christian Ed Collaboration Chair and Jane Hartwell, who is the Diocesan Canon for Formation and Networks.  Say hello.  We'll help you with support and connections.

And also:

You'll find out about Maine Episcopal Youth Events at maineyouth.org  These include summer opportunities, a mission events, summer opportunities and weekend diocesan events for kids & teens in grades 6-12.  Or contact our leader, Diocesan Youth Missioner Sara D'Angio White

To find out about our summer camp, go to Bishopswood.org for our regular summer camp (ages 7-16).  Our special diocesan summer opportunities for kids in grades 6-12 are at  maineyouth.org 

Do you want to visit another church's Sunday School?  Or drive to visit other leaders?  We will reaimburse you for gas and coffee.  Contact Katie Holicky or Jane Hartwell.

Jane has a small lending library for your use.

We can help you find a consultant or otehr help.

Our diocese has grants to enable you to attend continuing education event.  Contact Jane for help, or see the Wolf Fund (for lay) and the Loring Fund (for clergy) online.

Also... come to annual learning and networking events - like Spring Training, Christian Ed Collaboration Gatherings, and online seminars.  We hope you come!  Please make sure that Jane has your name and contact information.
