Who We Are

Shinefamilies.org is a resource hub for families developed by the creators of Shine curriculum. Shine: Living in God’s Light is a Sunday School curriculum co-published by Brethren Press, publishing ministry of the Church of the Brethren, and MennoMedia, publishing ministry of Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada. Many know us for our longtime commitment to peace, service, and Christian discipleship.

In addition to Mennonite Church USA, Mennonite Church Canada, and the Church of the Brethren, our users include Baptist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist, Moravian Church in North America, Mennonite Brethren, United Church of Canada, United Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, Cumberland Presbyterian, Friends (Quakers), Lutheran, Brethren in Christ, Evangelical Covenant, and nondenominational churches.

Love Jesus. Through Shine, families come to walk in the ways of Jesus and are guided by his teachings. In hearing and sharing God’s good news together, our hearts are opened to love Jesus.  

Grow in faith. Shine nurtures a growing understanding of the Bible and fosters relationships with God through prayer, worship, and study. As we explore God’s story together, we grow as children of God. 

Change the world. Through Shine, families connect the biblical story to their own lives. As we seek God’s kingdom together, the response is justice, kindness, and humility.
