All families in the Church School will be receiving a mailing with craft supplies for Lenten and Easter crafts. To cut down on mailing costs, I am posting the directions for using these materials here as downloadable files in the pdf format. Let me know if you have any trouble accessing and I can email them to you directly. Laura at email@example.com
The Upper School kids had a great first week of online church school! There were 14 kids present!! All Saints’ Upper School is for kids in grades 5th- 12th. The start time is 11:30- show up a little early to chat and say hi! The talk this week was about the Stations of the Cross by David Kercher. It was excellent! You can view the talk on the church website- it will be posted later this week.
We will be holding Upper School class online for the foreseeable future. It is easy to join- I will email out a link to all registered families in the church school every Friday- you should feel free to share it and invite youth to join- it costs nothing. And it is so nice to see each other and talk about God together.
We had our first online Church School this Sunday. The younger kids class was at 9:15am and we had 14 kids there! This is such an easy way to see each other and stay connected- we will be holding class this way each week while we are in this situation- all are invited to join us! I will be emailing out the Invitation Link to registered church school families every Friday. Feel free to share it with family and friends.
The story this week was the birth of Jesus and the time he went to the temple and Mary and Joseph searched for him: “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” Luke 2:49
As we all adjust to the impact of the coronavirus, we want to continue to come together as a Church School community at All Saints. We are suspending church school at the church at this time. But we still will be holding church school. To support that safely we have arranged for a Lower School class (kids pre-k to 4th) of Godly Play to be offered at 9:15-9:45 online this Sunday morning, and an Upper School class (5th-12th grade) conversation about the Stations of the Cross from 11:30-noon.
The platform we are using for this is called Zoom. It is free to use. You can join the class on a computer, a tablet or a phone. On a computer, you will be asked to run the Zoom software (free and downloadable). And for the tablet and the phone you will need to download the Zoom App (free) from the App Store. We have tested it out and it is easy to use and fun! You will be able to see each other and talk in a conversational way. It will be so nice to see each other!! The classes will be lead by Sunday School teachers, and you should feel free to join both if you like.
Please email me for the invitation to the classes at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which class you would like to join. See you then!!
If you are unable to get to church on Sunday morning, this simple prayer service can be done with your family. It is taken from the book, “Common Prayer for Children and Families,” by Jenifer Gamber & Timothy Seamans
We would love your help for making Lenten Pretzels next Sunday. If you can make some dough, that would be great! You can use the recipe HERE. Please leave dough in the kitchen. We will bake them during the 10am service and serve them at coffee hour.
