Jesus Calls the Disciples
How we can use our devices to create strong, healthy communities?
How welcoming am I and my community to people I/we meet? Would Jesus want to join our community?
How can we practice being partners with Jesus in creating spaces for faith-filled discussions?

Community Kindness Map Project
Strong community matters. It provides a sense of connection and a place of belonging. We can all help build a strong, welcoming community by sharing kindness and making a difference for others – wherever we find ourselves. This Community Kindness Map project will help kids and families think more intentionally about how they can help out.
