Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

April 23rd,2021 Categories: Latest News
Blessing us in these stories and the imagery of Jesus as the good shepherd, is the story of “The Lost Sheep,” of the shepherd who leaves the ninety-nine others to find the one who is lost. Basking in the promise this offers that each life matters, we say emphatically alongside this week’s court decision: Black. Lives. Matter.Our younger students will read “The Lost Sheep” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. We’ll wonder about how the sheep might feel when it’s lost and then how it’ll feel when it’s found. We’ll pray, sing, and say goodbye with a blessing.

This week, our older students will read John 10:11-18 and we’ll talk about Jesus as the good shepherd. Last week, we read about Jesus as the way, truth, and life. I believe  our conversation will lead rather seamlessly into this conversation about Jesus shepherding us.

Last week, our children read about heaven and embodying God’s love. We spent time dreaming about what heaven might be like and left with the affirmation that they could show the love of God just by being themselves. Trevor Allen joined us for our younger children’s worship. The children enjoyed meeting him and are looking forward to getting to see his famous puppets soon!

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
