N.C. Lutherans take ‘Jesus on the Go’

Digital photos, face-to-face conversations grow Christian faith

Throughout the summer, families emailed cell phone photos of "Jesus on the Go" back to the congregation from wherever they had traveled. Mandy Houghton, director of faith formation at Christ the King Lutheran Church, Cary, N.C., says Jesus on the Go was "much like the Flat Stanley [book] character" and helped "pass on the faith outside the walls of Christ the King."

• Share a Cup, Share a Verse or Bible speed-dating: Ask children and youth to share Bible verses and faith stories with adults and vice versa. For younger children, four minutes is sufficient, said Heidi Kleine, who coordinates youth and adult faith formation at Christ the King Lutheran Church. Older participants were given six to seven minutes, she said.

• Steward cards: Present families and individuals with hole-punched cards on a ring. List one way to be a steward on each card.
