Sticky faithAt first it seemed that Sticky Faith was about helping teens carry with them the faith of their childhood as they left the safety net of family & church for college and the beginning of independent life. As it is turning out, that’s barely the beginning of an exciting adventure that has huge potential for strengthening our relationships with one another in the church and our relationship with Christ!
