Childrens Corner

 
 

Aside from all the singing we’ve been practicing, our young Sunday School kids have been studying the story of the Parable of the Vineyard Laborers. The kids discussed topics like how life isn't always fair and why do we put in extra work as Christians to spread the Good News. It also taught us about God’s grace and mercy. We don’t have to be perfect to be Christians.

We watched Superbook’s “The Last Supper” and “He Is Risen” to highlight Holy Week. The kids enjoy the lessons from the videos.

We started the next lesson the Parable of the Mustard Seed. Jesus tells the Disciples that they only need to have faith as big as a mustard seed to move mountains. We’re talking about growing our faith, too, because the most likely type of mustard seed in this Bible story is referring to a black mustard which grows around 9 feet tall! It provides shelter for birds and shade to travelers. Mustard wasn’t a typical seed to plant in a garden. It was usually an herb that would grow out in the middle of an open field.

The Youth Group prepared for the church’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. They stuffed and hid over 500 eggs for the children to find after worship on Easter Sunday. Thank you to all who brought eggs and prizes for the Easter celebration!

We have been making a formal list of substitute teachers for our Sunday School classes.  We have put up a list for summer Sunday School teachers and assistants. Please sign up or let Robin Pask know or call the office. Thanks!

The Education Committee is in charge of the May potluck on May 5th. Then on Sunday, May 26, we will be honoring our graduates. If you have a graduate from college, high school or eighth grade, please call the church office.
