CHILDREN’S DIRECTOR -- Chris Bailey
This past Sunday, Palm Sunday (actually, the day after due to technical issues), I uploaded a video onto Facebook for the kids. In the video, I am hanging out with 3 little donkeys that live across the street from me and am reading a book called “The Donkey No One Could Ride” by Anthony DeStefano. It is a sweet little book that tells the story of Palm Sunday from the donkey’s point of view. I think the kids will really enjoy seeing the donkeys, hearing the story, and seeing the beautiful artwork in the book.
Several of the teachers here at the church have submitted videos that we will be putting up on Facebook throughout the coming week or two. As you know, Ms. Lynn already has hers posted, so be sure to be on the lookout for the coming videos from Miss Bethany, Mrs. Pat and Mrs. Jennifer!
Finally, as the annual Easter Egg Hunt had to be cancelled due to the virus, we have put together special Egg Hunt kits. These are no ordinary kits! The eggs inside the box are special because they glow in the dark! Inside each kit will be regular eggs, glow eggs, other glowing pieces and one empty egg. A glow-in-the-dark eggs hunt is a fun and unique way to celebrate! The kit will include a devotional book for the kids to do, a variety of eggs, glow sticks, a few other fun trinkets, and of course some candy. I will also be posting a video on the Facebook page that will go along with the kit for directly after they hunt the eggs. After they gather the eggs, (but before they open them) gather around to watch the video lesson I will post and we will open the eggs together! If you have any questions, please let me know. Egg hunt kits will be available at the church office, and we will have some Easter morning at the service.
This Easter may not be one of the easiest to go through, because there are so many things going on, but it will be memorable. Let’s work together to make it memorable for all the right reasons! Remind the kids that Jesus is alive and well, and that all this hasn’t come to stay, but came to pass.
We miss everyone and love you all!
That the next generation may know,
