Journey to Holy Week Service – March 20

Please join us Wednesday, March 20, at 5:30 p.m. for our Journey to Holy Week service. This service invites children to follow in Jesus’ footsteps through the final days of his life. We’ll begin with the celebration of Palm Sunday, which will even include a live donkey! Then we will move through the events of Holy Thursday, taking part in the ritual of foot-washing and remembering the last meal Jesus shared with his friends. We will remember the final days of Jesus’ life with prayers and song and the service will end with the promise of Easter resurrection. This will be a 45-minute service, and pizza will be served afterwards (suggested $5 donation at the door).

Pit Stop for Parents – March 10

Pit Stop provides a space where parents can stop and reflect on how we can help our children develop through communication and connection with their family and faith. Classes are offered periodically with a different guest speaker, target age group, and focus or theme.

Our next Pit Stop for Parents will take place Sunday, March 10, from 10:10-10:50 a.m. in the All Saints’ Room (128), and led by Lizzie Elder, MSW, LCSW, therapist for women with Vitality Counseling Services.

At this session, we will explore the intricacies of the adolescent brain from a neuroscience perspective and come away with a better understanding and equip parents with tools to help feel confident and empowered to connect with your tween/teen.
