Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

May 28th,2021 Categories: Latest News
Last Sunday the older children and I read Acts 2:1-11. We talked about Pentecost, compared it to the Church’s birthday and pondered at the entry of the Holy Spirit and bizarre nature of the new language abilities she enabled in those present. We talked about the Holy Spirit and the Holy Trinity and identified together the ways we feel the spirit active in our lives.

The younger children, Mr. Trevor, and I read the ending of “The Holy  Spirit” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. We found out what the special gift God had left us was – the Holy Spirit – and spent some time cherishing that divine gift together.

Mr. Trevor brought his puppet, Saffron, to our Sunday School Class, and we had an impromptu puppet show as each child brought their favorite puppets to share as well. The spirit moved, and what a deep joy was found in the goofiness of our puppet shows.

This Sunday, the older children and I will meet at 10 AM to read Romans 8:12-17. We’ll talk about the difference the text makes between the spirit and the flesh and consider together whether we see the same distinction. We’ll talk about Paul’s declaration that we are “co-heirs” with Christ and wonder what it is we will inherit.

Since last Sunday, some of our younger children asked about who Paul was, this Sunday,  the younger children, Mr. Trevor, and I will meet at 10:30 to read “Paul” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. We’ll talk about Paul’s story and how God can turn our lives around in an instant! As always, we will pray, sing, and say goodbye with a blessing.

What a delight it is to be with the children of The Park and to revel together in the knowledge that we are all God’s children!

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
