Children's Faith Formation Survey from the Nahant Village Church
Are you looking for a place... where your children/ grandchildren/ neighbor's kids can learn about God? Where they can encounter nature, music, and story in a sacred way? Where they can learn about Jesus' life? Where they can find acceptance and belonging in community? Are you looking for a church that will teach, love, and celebrate your children?
I want to know what you are hungry for with regards to children's faith formation. This is one way for you to share what is important to you.
All questions are optional. This is simply an opportunity for your voice to be heard.
If you would like to meet with me for a walk or some tea, please be in touch. I would love to hear more about your prayers for this church's children's ministries and what you are passionate about.
Any questions? Email Rev. Megan at
