Children & Youth Ministries This Week!

Children’s Ministries

Hooray for a New Year of Sunday School!

This Spring, we’ll be concentrating on five parables of Jesus, delving deep into each one over the course of an entire month.  This morning we’ll use a tableau drama practice to begin exploring the parable of the Prodigal Son.  In the weeks to come, we’ll use art practices and prayer practices to go deeper into the story.  And at the end of the month, the kids will present what they’ve learned to their parents during Sunday School time.  Hope your children can join us!

Formation Eucharist on January 14th!

After months of planning, we’re ready to launch our first Formation Eucharist at the 9:00 AM service on January 14th!  We won’t have Children’s Church that day, since we’ll all be in the sanctuary learning together throughout the entire service.  Over time we hope to answer all of the questions that you and your children have ever had about why we do what we do in worship.  For this first Formation Eucharist, we’ll be focusing on the psalms.  We’ll have a children’s bulletin to keep kids focused on the service, and children are invited to come to the aisle for the sermon and the Prayers of the People.  We hope that you’ll sit with your children, and help them learn as you learn.
