But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

We gather together as a community of faith, understanding that the seed of God is in each us. With fertile soil, sustenance and nurture, we will thrive and grow up to God. This day is designed to spiritually feed those who are called to the ministry of education with children, youth or adults in our congregations. It is a day to be ministered to so you can minister to others.
