Good Evening, FPC Children, Youth, and Families!

I miss you all and hope you are doing well (all things considered!). Hopefully these activities bring some joy to your week:

Something to READ
Click here for this week’s story–the parable of the vineyard laborers and the generous landowner. This story is especially appropriate right now, and 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 God’s Plan by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Carlton Abrams (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 for children.

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

Something to DO
As I said during Story Time, God wants us to take care of everyone in our church and in our community. This week I challenge you to reach out to someone in the congregation (or a potential new member!) by calling them, writing a note, or sending them a picture of a rainbow! If you want ideas for who to contact and/or someone’s contact information, shoot me an email and I will gladly help!

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,
