As we travel through new and uncertain times, your church family would like to be a trusted navigator on our new paths and to walk beside you. We will be uploading videos, prayers, helpful hints, and much more. We also would like to hear from you on what is working and how your family has found solace in this difficult time.
I will share with you that Ben and I have discovered three new walking trails, cooked some new recipes, and watched some movies while Brian and I have had lots of time to reconnect and to think about cleaning out closets. I guess we can tackle that next week.
As many of you know Ben is graduating this year and our friends and family were coming to see his graduation from Maryland, Massachusetts and Texas. He was looking forward to being the center of attention and to having his accomplishments honored. Many of us are having to realign our expectations to stay well but celebrating our children’s life markers is essential to a healthy development. We have arranged for Ben to have a party everywhere we travel as soon as the ban has been lifted. Each place we go, i.e. Maryland, Massachusetts, Maine and San Antonio will be a part of the celebration of Ben. Not all our children are of an age in which waiting is a part of their development. As we head quickly to Holy Week and Easter, we can find ways to celebrate what we would normally gather for that are just as rememberable. There are several ideas listed here to have a great Easter Celebration and we would love to see pictures of any or all your new and different celebrations.
In addition to Children’s ministries, we will be uploading commentaries for Sunday Readings and for Holy Week to our website for Adults Education. We may be able to create a lectionary class on zoom and have an opportunity to talk about the readings…more to come.
Director of Children's Ministry and Education
