Become An Early Adopter
We are a new organization and love early adopters! So from now through August 1st, our subscription fee is reduced. Instead of paying the full subscription of $300 per year, early adopters contribute only $200. This special price includes not only the 30 resource packets coming for 2017-18 church year, but also the 18 resources packets from our pilot 2016-17 year. Additionally, early adopters who join before April 7 get to participate in the selection process for our 2017-18 monthly themes!
Here's a more detailed overview of what subscriptions include:
Worship & Children's Faith Engagement Packets
In addition to the small group packet, subscribers receive worship and children’s faith formation resource packets each month. This supports worship leaders and religious educators as they weave the monthly theme into all areas of church life. This comprehensive array of services is intended to help heal the organizational and spiritual disconnection that frequently exists within our congregations. As we all know, integrated ministries are transformative ministries. OUR GIFT TO YOU: download the worship Transformation and Promise packets, and the children's faith engagement packets for Transformation and Promise.
Online Inspiration & Community
Our Faith Works Facebook inspiration page and Twitter feed provide additional weekly engagement with the themes. Not only is this a great way to provide your church members with on-going inspiration, it also enables them to feel spiritually connected to liberal Christians from all over the country..
Online Leader Support
We know leaders need support as they adapt the Faith Works material to their unique context and introduce their small groups and congregations to a new way of doing things.
Our Facebook "Leaders Group" allows Faith Works preachers, worship leaders and musicians to share what’s working and ask for help. Imagine being able to ask colleagues from around the country for music suggestions and preaching angles! Imagine preachers sharing sermons that they are proud of and musicians offering each other songs that made the theme come alive! Imagine religious educators sharing children’s worship, classroom, and family faith formation ideas!
Additionally, we periodically offer webinars for our Faith Works small group facilitators and program leaders. Faith Works is an entirely different way of doing small groups. During these webinars, our Faith Works team offers implementation tips and helps leaders with whatever challenges they are facing. Drop in every once in a while or come to every one!
How much will this cost?
Instead of paying the full subscription of $300 per year, early adopters contribute only $200. This price includes not only the 30 resource packets of our 2017-18 cycle, but also the 18 resources packets archived from our pilot 2016-17 year. Payments can be made by check or processed with credit cards via PayPal.
How will I receive these resources?
Once you join, you immediately receive access to the past packets from January 2017 until the present month. From there, subscribers will be on our normal schedule, receiving material approximately 5-6 weeks ahead of the month for which the packets were written. For instance, April’s packets on Transformation will be sent mid-February and May’s packets on Story will be sent mid-March. This 5-6 week lead time allows our material to be current while at the same time leaving plenty of room for our members to plan ahead and adapt the material as needed.
What are the perks of becoming an Early Adopter?
In addition to paying a reduced subscription rate for the 2017-18 church year, early adopters get the 18 packets from our pilot 2017 year for free. Early adopters also get to attend our periodic webinar and coaching calls for free. And early adopters who join before April 7 get to participate in the selection process for our 2017-18 monthly themes!
