Children and Youth Ministry Update from The Rev. Cara Gilger

August 28th,2020 Categories: Latest News

Dear Park Families,

Last week our lesson was 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 and learn about the foundation that God provides all of us to love and do justice.

This week we will be departing a bit from the adult worship scripture and studying John 10 in The Complete Illustrated Children’s Bible. This passage tells the story of the parable of the lost sheep, so we will be utilizing AJ Levine’s book Who Counts? as part of our lesson about how God cares for us, forgives us and wants us to be a part of what God is doing in the world.

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

If you were lost in the forest what three things would you need to find your way?

Who is a person that helps you when you are feeling lost?

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
