Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

May 21st,2021 Categories: Latest News

Last Sunday the children and I read Luke 24:44-53. We talked about our imaginings of what it might have looked like for Jesus to be taken up to the heavens as he was blessing the disciples. We wondered what might come next as we look towards this Sunday, Pentecost.

The younger children as always spent time in prayer. We sang, prayed, and welcomed Saffron, one of Mr. Trevor’s puppets, into our study this week,  then we discussed where Jesus was going and what the next surprise from God might be.

This Sunday, the older children and I will meet at 10 AM to read the story of Pentecost. We’ll talk about the Holy Spirit,  how we think she works and how it feels when the Holy Spirit guides us. We’ll talk about the Trinity and how Christians have conceived of the Creator, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit as all being God.

The younger children and I will meet at 10:30 to read the second half of “The  Holy Spirit” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. Will talk about the Holy Spirit and think about how we experience her. We  will pray, sing, and say goodbye with the blessing, and if we’re lucky maybe another of Mr. Trevor’s friends will join us.

As I say each week, I am so grateful to be a part of the Park Avenue Christian Church community. And I’m eager to see how we grow together this next year!

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
