Okay, who else is absolutely LOVING this beautiful weather?! It’s amazing what some sunshine and some 60 degree days can do for the spirit. I do hope that you’ve had some opportunity to be outside and enjoy this unexpected February blessing. Yesterday I boldly proclaimed to the Youth and parents that winter was over and that we are done with the snow. I was quickly told to hush…we’ll see.
Alright, just some quick updates on what is happening in the world of Youth and Children’s Ministries here at FCC-MWC…
As you came to church for Ash Wednesday or last Sunday’s worship service you may have noticed a table set up in the Narthex with a big sign that says, “Lent Activities For Home.” Throughout the season of Lent I will be putting out different resources and activities for you to take home and use to enhance your Lenten journey. Feel free to help yourself to what is there and share with your friends and family.
This Sunday, February 21, our CYF and Chi Rho will meet at 4:00 p.m. (please note the time change). We will be doing a “Faith in Film” night and will wrap up just before the Board Meeting which is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Our JYF (3rd through 5th Grade) will meet at their regularly scheduled 5:00 p.m. starting time.
On Sunday, February 28, our Children and their parents/grandparents are invited to stay after worship for an afternoon of pretzel making. We will be exploring together what pretzels can teach us about prayer and Lent. Lunch will be provided.
Our CYF and Chi Rho will meet this Wednesday, February 17, at 6:00 p.m. We will be exploring together the Spiritual Discipline of Fasting.
