Children and Youth Ministry Update from The Rev. Cara Gilger

July 31st,2020 Categories: Latest News

Dear Park Families,

Last Sunday we explored the question “Who is my neighbor?” and read the story of The Good Samaritan in Luke 10 and watched this video telling of AJ Levine’s Who Is My Neighbor? We learned about God’s desire for us to honor one another’s diversity while building inclusive communities of care and thriving.

This Sunday we will be studying Romans 8:38-39 and reading the passage on Romans in The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible (found on page 588). We will be exploring what it means to never be separated from God. To prepare for worship we ask that families gather a few pieces of paper and a set of magnets (from the fridge works great) to use for our learning activity.

As we prepare for Sunday’s lesson, families can discuss the following table topics during dinner to begin engaging the teaching themes:

Share a time when you felt connected to other people.
Would you rather be lost in the woods or at sea?
Where do you feel closest to God?

Looking forward to seeing your children on Sunday at 10:30 am on BlueJeans. If you need a link to sign up for our Children’s Worship email Stephanie Wilson at

In Peace,
Rev Cara
