Forming faith and spreading the kingdom of God are the primary purposes of the church.
Faith formation happens best on a personal level, but busy professionals and volunteers often do not have the time or training to create resources. That is where we come in. Spirit & Truth Publishing creates faith formation resources: high-quality, flexible tools that you can use in the classroom, the sanctuary, the coffee shop, or the home.
Faith Formation Series
Here you can find our product within four primary series.
Learn and live out God’s Word with our Living the Word series of products. Our Narrative Lectionary-based products are for children, youth, adults, leaders, intergenerational audiences, and families in their homes! We have also added to these two new products that follow the popular Revised Common Lectionary for intergenerational classrooms and families at home.
Learning Together is our newest—and most flexible—faith formation resource. Lessons can be used with intergenerational ministry and multi-age Sunday school (including the rotation model). We even include recommendations on how they can be used for Vacation Bible School! Each five-lesson unit will cover a different topic or theme and can be used at any time and in any configuration.
Our original faith formation product, the Spirit & Truth series is for lower and upper elementary students. Through stories, skits, and activities, students learn about worship, the liturgy, and the main festivals of the church year.
This unique program engages confirmands with each other, their families, and their congregation. Each lesson can be taught in person or online, giving leaders flexibility to use this in many different contexts. Along with the written curriculum, Chosen Together comes with personal coaching by the writer to help you get the program going!
Cross+Gen & At-Home Ministry Products
Within our three faith formation series, we have two overlapping categories: at-home faith formation and cross+generational ministry. Both categories have resources that follow the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary (Bible overview).
Home faith formation is key to any individual’s spiritual life. That, in combination with the unique distance-learning needs in our current pandemic, has led to a brand-new collection of products that are specifically designed to be used at home, either individually or as a family.
Cross+Generational, or intergenerational, ministry aims to form faith by building strong relationships between disciples of all ages, honoring the knowledge, experience, and perspective of each generation and individual.
