CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL – HOME EDITION
March 29, 2020

If you would like to explore this story at home, I have a few resources you can use. Here they are:

How kids can help
We all know that social distancing can be difficult. But there is something we can do to spread some cheer! Children and youth of our Parish (or even adults, too) who would like to help spread some cheer are invited to write a generic letter or draw/paint a beautiful picture to share! There will be a bin outside of the preschool entrance where you can come by and drop off your pictures and letters. We will mail them out and take them to mailboxes of Parish members we know could use some cheer!
Letters will be held for a day or more before careful delivery to eliminate the spread of infection.
Offerings for Adults
We will be offering opportunities to join us online in a video conference style setting.
Check your email and this site for more information coming soon.
