Christian Education & Formation

We offer to you this week’s Virtual Sunday School Lesson, “Support For Needed Projects” with Dr. Carmichael D. Crutchfield as its instructor.  We also welcome Exhorter Barbara Jackson, member of Holsey Chapel CME Church in Marietta, GA, Georgia North Region, Atlanta Rome District, where Presiding Elder Rev. Dr. Jerry D. Woodfork, Sr. is Pastor. We also welcome Dr. Jerry Hardee, member of Bethel CME Church in Valdosta, GA, Georgia South Region, Moultrie, McRae, Brunswick District, where Rev. Lavisha Williams is Pastor. The video includes music, scripture, lecture, challenge, and application. It may be utilized in concert with your existing Sunday School or in substitution given the personal distancing parameters we are experiencing. For example, this video might be viewed by members in your congregations with a conference call held during the regular Sunday School period to offer facilitated discussion and review. There are CME Certified Christian Educators across the Episcopal Districts ready to offer assistance and creative solutions in concert with what we have done and are doing. Even during this crisis, we must be concerned about the spiritual needs of our congregations in addition to their physical and health needs. We welcome your feedback as we seek to expand the resources from the Department of Christian Education & Formation.  

Do you have an exceptional young person who is dedicated to their church, school and community? Does your youth leader go beyond the call of duty for the young people? We have created a space to honor them.

The Connectional Youth Ministry is pleased to announce CYM Salutes, a program distinguishing outstanding individuals in the area of Youth Ministry within the CME Church who are making a difference. The Youth of the Month and Youth Leader of the Month program will recognize individuals who demonstrate exemplary characteristics both in church and within the community.

#BlackChurches4Broadband Encourages Families to Sign up for Emergency Broadband (Internet) Benefit

Our hero, the late Congressman John Lewis, said that internet access is “the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.” A high-speed home broadband (internet) connection is vital for full enfranchisement in today’s world. It opens the door to educational and economic opportunities, connects family and church communities, allows access to remote health care services, and empowers greater civic engagement and activism.

Congress recently created an Emergency Broadband Benefit giving eligible families up to $50 per month to pay for home broadband service. You may be eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if your household has experienced a sudden loss of income during the pandemic, or is currently receiving federal benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, Lifeline, Pell Grants, or free and reduced-price school lunches.

Visit blackchurches4broadband.org to learn more about eligibility and how to sign up.
