Children and Youth Ministry Update from The Rev. Francesca Fortunato

December 13th,2019 Categories: Latest News
Dear Park People,
On Sunday December 8th, the Park Sunday school children had their final song-and-story workshop/rehearsal with our former Interim Music Minister, Paul Vasile, to prepare for their roles as worship leaders, during parts of the Cantata service on December 22nd. As always, the time with Paul was playful, as well as prayerful, and the children enjoyed every minute of it. Their teachers and I are so thankful for his enthusiastic presence in our children’s ministry community!

On December 15th, we will read Matthew 11:2-6. Discussion will focus on the many ways that Jesus helped people, and how we can follow Jesus by finding ways to be helpful, especially at this extra-busy time of year. For their creative response activity, the children will do some improvisational dramatic play, creating scenes about different ways to help others. After service, the children, teachers, and I, will go to the Manse together, for the annual children’s holiday party. We are all eager to discover what happy surprises await us, in that warm, beautiful place!

Advent blessings and well wishes as always,
Rev. Francesca Fortunato: Children’s Minister
