  • Add meaning to family celebrations and create new ones
  • Multiple resources for church, home, and community celebrations

Multi-generational Holidays and family events are times for celebration, learning, rituals, food, and fun. This edition of Faithful Celebrations focuses on the months of May, June, and July, when secular holidays inspire us to gather to celebrate God's creation, our freedom, and our families.

Key ideas, activities, materials, background information, music, art, recipes, and prayer resources are all included for small, intimate, or large multi-generational groups, as many festivities bring several generations together at church, at home, and in our communities. Celebrate occasions like Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, Summer Solstice, and July 4th in thoughtful, inclusive, and innovative ways.

Audience: Christian educators, youth ministers, camps, schools, parents
