As a follow-up to the recent Youth Sunday service, this week’s Sunday school classes covered “The Prodigal Son,” Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32. They discussed the strength of God’s love for us, despite our sins and mistakes. The younger kids loved seeing teacher Camma Stott’s cherished family photos that she brought in to describe her love for her own family.
Our God Squad classes discussed Passover and The Last Supper, Luke 22:7-20. The younger group traveled to the busy and noisy Jerusalem and shouted “Hosanna” when Jesus came by on his donkey. They also created a spring magnet that said “Jesus Gives Us New Life.” The older God Squad class began with a trip outside to take photos of all the items that remind them of their savior. After, they enjoyed grape juice and bread during their own Last Supper.
As we head into spring, I have a few important dates and reminders for our St. Paul parents! On March 20th, the nursery will be closed and God Squad will not meet on March 23rd due to Spring Break. We will have Sunday school on March 20th. On March 27th in between services, we’ll have two Easter egg hunts set up for the kids (one for the little kids and one for the older). The egg hunts will begin around 8:45, depending on when the kids finish their breakfast. If you have candy to donate there will be a box marked “Easter candy” in the kitchen area beginning this Sunday.
Also, the April 3rd Sunday school session will take place in the children’s garden with Jim Nelson and Susan Brakhane. Because the kids will plant and perform hands-on gardening activities during this time, please send them in play clothes if possible.
