Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

April 9th,2021 Categories: Latest News
Last week, our children read the Easter story as we celebrated our Risen God!

At 10 AM, our older students met to read John 20:1-18. We talked about the thoughts of Mary who found the empty tomb and Peter and the other disciple as they raced to see it for themselves. We talked about the importance of the empty tomb and risen Jesus for our faith and went back and read the end of John 19 to see the ways people checked to see that Jesus was really dead. We shared in the joy of Easter Morning and the news that Jesus is alive!

At 10:30 AM, our younger children read “Jesus Comes Back” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. We wondered at how it would have felt to find the empty tomb and thought about whether or not we would have believed the news that Jesus had risen from the dead! We celebrated Easter Morning by sharing our families’ Easter traditions with one another, then we prayed, sang, and said goodbye with a blessing.

This week, our older students will read the story of Doubting Thomas in John 20:19-30,  and one of our younger children is bringing a story to read us all! We’re looking forward  to another week celebrating the Easter Season!

I remain so grateful for the opportunity to serve this community and thank each of you for making The Park feel like home for me.

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
