Currently the children in the rotations are learning about Mary Magdalene and her important role in Jesus life and death. She was the first witness of the resurrection, talking with Jesus at the tomb, she was chosen by Jesus Christ to be the apostle to the apostles. He told her to tell the others that the resurrection had happened. The season of Easter is a perfect time to continue to explore her story. Later in the month the children will spend some time learning who Martin Luther was and why his story is so important to us today.
During the 9:15 worship time, we continue to explore prayer. The objective is for the children to get beyond their own desires and look at the difference between needs and wants as well as look beyond themselves. On Palm Sunday, the 1st through 8th graders experienced prayer and meditation by using the labyrinth.
We are planning for Children’s Sunday. Work has begun on the music for that service which should be quite inspiring! And remember those rocks and stones the children brought home at the beginning of the year? They will be returning here sometime in the spring so be sure your child is taking good care of it!

 

Confirmation
There is only seminars left before Confirmation Sunday which is April 29 this year. Of course the confirmands are busy with their projects and will be turning in their final papers and make a decision to reaffirm or affirm their baptism, be confirmed and join the church on April 29.
There will be a coffee hour on April 22 hosted by the Christian Outreach and Christian Education Committees. This confirmands will have information about their individual projects and be available to answer questions. The proceeds from this coffee hour will be divided between the 7 confirmands in support of their particular project. Thank you for your support ahead of time!
Following the confirmation and family worship service on April 29, there will be a celebration of the entire group’s confirmation journey at coffee hour hosted by the Christian Education Committee and the Diaconate. There will also be a celebration dinner for all of the confirmands and their families that same evening at 5:30.
Thank you for your support and prayers of these young people as they continue in their faith journey.
