FAMILY WORSHIP NEWS
Greetings from Family Worship! It’s been a terrific start to 2016 and the season of Epiphany. Many families with children attended the Epiphany service on January 6 and heard the story of the Magi. We then shared communion “old style” with some children sampling the milk and honey. What a meaningful evening for all!
During FW, we have been exploring Jesus’ life with familiar stories- the wedding feast of course! Did you know that we hear the SAME Gospel as YOU do when we are in Family Worship? Why then do we go our separate ways you ask? Well, children learn by playing and so we play, or craft, or act out the story after we hear it. Glitter does not easily come off the pews…Families share some time just for them during our lessons and it’s the hope that families that play together, learn and PRAY together. However, we all feel it is important to be received back into the sanctuary after our service so that we may all share
in the breaking of the bread. Intergenerational sharing of the Holy Eucharist- the best of both worlds!
Lo and behold Lent will be upon us in a few days. We will have a craft table set up during the Mardi Gras Pancake Supper (Feb 9). Also we would like to invite you to our Valentine’s Day Party right after church on February 14. Try to invite someone you love to church that day, even if it’s just for the party. The kids will decorate and prepare special snacks for an extended coffee hour and will have crafts and a picture booth available. Please stay for a while and enjoy God’s love!
In conclusion, Cat Reith-Lowery will continue to prepare and teach Family Worship through February. If you are on the rotation to lead, please come and assist Cat! Family Worship is for families and their children, up to 18 years of age. We look forward to seeing you all at church!
