Good Evening, FPC Children, Youth, and Families!

I hope you are all staying healthy and well and that you enjoy this week’s activities:

Something to READ
Click here for this week’s story about Jesus walking on water. I encourage you to try some of the suggested discussions/activities described after the story! 

Something to VIEW
Click here to view this week’s “Sunday Morning Story Time with Bailey & Friends” during which I read Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman (with the help of my puppet friends, of course!).

Grief Resource: I also recorded a reading of Cry, Heart, But Never Break by Glenn Ringtved for any children who are experiencing grief and loss. You can access this video any time here.

Something to COLOR

Click here to download and print coloring pages and reflections for teens and adults to meditate upon during the fourth week of Easter (provided by our friends at Illustrated Ministry).

Something to DO
There are countless needs in our community right now. I challenge you and your family to help however you can this week! The Greater Mankato Area United Way has compiled a great list of needs and how we can help serve. You can find the list here. Whether you make masks; volunteer your time; or donate food, money, or blood, be sure to engage your whole family and discuss the importance of giving back however you can!

As always, feel free to send me any photos you have of your family participating in these or any other fun quarantine activities, and I will feature them on our Facebook Page! You can also send questions, comments, concerns, or feedback my way at any time.

All the best,
