Join us as we grow in our faith together! 

Parents and caregivers along with their kids are warmly invited to join us as we learn and grow together in a Christ-centered and kid friendly environment.

What is Seeds of Faith?

Seeds of Faith is a new ministry of Camp Chestnut Ridge and Orange Cooperative Parish that seeks to support parents and caregivers in passing on their faith and values to their kids. We hope that as a result of this program, families will feel less alone in their faith and parenting journeys as they build deeper connections with their kids, other families, and with God. We are grateful to Lilly Foundation Inc for so generously funding us through its Christian Parenting and Caregiving Initiative


Monday Night Dinners
February - May

6pm at the Morris Center

RSVP not required but appreciated! You can also use the RSVP form to let us know about any dietary needs you have. 

Something special happens around a table. We hope that through weekly time together over a shared meal, families will form a community of support and encouragement as they seek to more fully integrate their faith into family life. 

While we are gathered, we will also participate in faith-based activities. Sometimes we will have an intergenerational program and other times grownups and kids will have separate programming that is more targeted to their needs. 


During February and March, we will be learning about the season of Lent and exploring ways that the three Lenten traditions of fasting, prayer and generosity can help us prepare for Easter. Families will learn small, simple practices that will help them integrate faith into regular life at home as well as ideas for meaningful family traditions related to this sacred time of year.
