Children and Youth Ministry Update from The Rev. Cara Gilger

August 21st,2020 Categories: Latest News

Dear Park Families,

Last Sunday the children studied Psalm 67 alongside the adults in worship. We listened to scripture and reflected on the story Early Sunday Morning by Denene Millner. As we listened we drew pictures of what it means to rejoice and praise God.

This week our lesson will be based on Matthew 16:13-20 as the Disciples inquire who Jesus is and Jesus tells Peter he will be the rock the church is founded on. We plan on building our own churches and talking about what makes a good foundation and how our foundation shaped in God’s image and dreams for us gives us our identity.

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

Would you rather live in a treehouse in the forest or a houseboat on a river?
What are your two best characteristics and why?
What is your favorite thing about church?

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

In Peace,
Rev Cara
