Did you feel the buzz this past Sunday morning? It was like an energy was coursing throughout the church. Children were in the Sanctuary and Education wing doing in-person activities, adults were helping and worshipping and SINGING – it felt exciting and overwhelming and beautiful. And while it might feel new and unfamiliar for the children (for them, 2 years is an ETERNITY!), there is an element of comfort for them, too. The songs, the people, the elements of worship that we continued on-line when we couldn’t be in-person…these things brought comfort and continuity to adults and children these past two years.
Please allow me to use some water references, in keeping with our Lenten theme, of course :). Even though schedules and activities may look different than they did 2 years ago, we are not facing totally uncharted waters, friends. We are swimming in a familiar ocean – the wind is calming down, the clouds are clearing off, and we’re ready to put on some sunscreen and dip our toes in the waves!
After the last two Sundays, it’s clear that our children are jumping in feet first and it’s up to the rest of us to swim with them!
Here’s how you can support our children’s ministries programs:
Most importantly, the best way to support our children’s ministries program is to continue doing what you always do – share love, show kindness, and give our children time to grow. What beautiful and important people they (and you ALL) are. And what a privilege it is to be with them each week.
With gratitude and love, always,
