Update from Rev. Francesca Fortunato, Children and Youth Ministry Leader
The Park Sunday School children will begin the 2018-19 program year, on 9/9/18, with a reading from the Gospel of Mark (7:1-8). We will talk about the ways that we experience God’s presence (and receive God’s messages) outside of church/Sunday school, as well as in them, and the children will be led to share the ways that they encountered God during the Summer hiatus. Our creative response will be to draw, write (or both) examples of Divine presence and meaning, in our lives outside the church walls, including those places in nature that inspire us, but also places where we simply have fun (the swimming pool, the amusement park; the movies.) There will also be plenty of time for social interaction and play, catching up with each other, and enjoying the fellowship of church community friends.
