Finding God AT HOME RESOURCES

There are numerous, free, at-home family resources available, including at-home, parent-led lesson plans.  We understand that interruptions in faith formation due to unanticipated events such as school or parish closures can impact children’s spiritual development as well as their need for stability and consistency.

Finding God resources can help children stay engaged in their faith journey, providing valuable learning experiences and continuity in Christ during this challenging time. 

Parents can always access at-home resources at www.findinggod.com/family. 

  • At-Home Editions: These guides allow parents to conduct catechesis with their children in the home. For families with children in multiple grades using Finding God, utilize this Parent Quick Guide.
  • Interactive Session Reviews: Session reviews allow children, parents, and instructors to gauge learning objectives. Results can be emailed to a teacher or catechist along with student questions.  
  • Study Guides: Single page study guides outline important faith topics in each session. 
  • Raising Faith-Filled Kids: For parents who may not have the time or confidence to teach a full lesson, this resource provides background on the session and encourages parents to discuss faith topics with their children. 
  • Fishers of Faith: At the end of all sessions there is also an optional Unit Review called Fishers of Faith that you can also click on and have students test their knowledge in a fun way – 1 to 4 players
  • YouTube correlations: Parents can enhance every lesson with a media selection. Look Here.  —please see disclaimer printed on the document.
