Children’s News for March

Children will be immersed in lessons of Jesus’ journey as they enter into the Lenten season. Children ages pre-K through 3rd grade will experience God’s love each week in our Godly Play room. Hands-on activities, crafts, and a healthy snack will give children an insight into the Godly Play philosophy. Fourth – 5th graders will also experience the love of God and how to apply it to real world experiences through discussion, skits, and scripture readings. The emphasis on giving will continue, as will the philosophy of  “love all as Jesus loves us,” using lessons from the Episcopal curriculum “Weaving God’s Promises.” Sunday school begins at 10:15 am in the large parish hall. Children will worship with their families for Family Worship Service on the First Sundays of the month.
