GRAND FORKS -- United Lutheran Church, 324 Chestnut St., downtown Grand Forks, will host a daylong conference Saturday, "Vibrant Faith," which is "focused on equipping families to nurture spiritual growth in their homes." It will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today in the church and is free and open to anyone.
The Rev. Tony Prinsen said it's for anyone to support youth and strengthen family faith experiences and it's aimed at parents, grandparents, faith mentors, church volunteers and clergy.
Session topics include: "Your Home is Church, too!" and "Using Milestones to Practice Faith."
