Children’s News for February

Welcome February, as children embrace the season of Lent! Children will dive into lessons about Jesus’ journey for forty days. “Common Prayer for Children and Families” connects children to the scripture in a meditative way. Sunday school will explore lessons from the Episcopal Church website curriculum “Lesson Plans that Work” and discuss the applicable meaning of the words, “everlasting,” ”Holy Spirit,” and “fasting.”

Children will also engage with lesson plans for Godly Play and Ministry to Children. All children Pre-K through 5th grade are welcome to join in the meeting on Zoom! Email Children’s Minister Liza Goodner at liza.goodner@stmartininthefields.org for the link. 

In addition to Sunday school this month, all families will receive “Lent in a Bag” offered in the parking lot on Sunday, February 14 before or after the 10:30 am worship service. The items of the bag are multigenerational meditative and interactive liturgies for all ages! All are welcome to receive a bag!
