Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

June 18th,2021 Categories: Latest News

This past Sunday, all the children heard the story of young Samuel hearing the call of God in 1 Samuel 3:1-20. Our younger children spent time reflecting on this story, sang and prayed together, and shared about their lives and exciting  plans for the summer. Our children, feeling tired after a long week of  school, spent some time in embodied prayer. We moved our bodies comfortably to center ourselves and roll out some stress from the week as we prayed for whatever was on our hearts. It was a centering and jam-packed week  for Children’s Worship!

This Sunday, the older children will meet once more with Rev. Stephanie. They’ll read Genesis 3:8-15 in our Inclusive Language Bible and spend some time talking about the vulnerability of Adam, Eve and God in that story and the violation of trust it tells us of. Our younger students will read “Adam and Eve”  in their Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible with Mr. Trevor. They’ll pray, sing, and say goodbye with a blessing.

Once more, Happy Pride! I hope you are enjoying this season as we transition into Summer and celebrate identity and love.

See you all on the 27th for Pride Sunday!

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
