Key for Kids and Families - March 2018


Pause - A Study for Kids During Lent
Sundays, Feb. 18 - March 25, 6-7:30 pm
Kids in kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to a special Sunday evening gathering each Sunday during Lent. We’ll meet in the Godly Play room to share stories and learn about prayer, Scripture reading, and other spiritual disciplines.

Lenten Coloring @ the Hub - Monday, March 5, 4-5:30 pm
Join Amanda at the Hub to work on the psalm-themed Lenten posters for our sanctuary. All are welcome!

Maundy Thursday Worship - Thursday, February 29, 7 pm
There will be no Wednesday night activities on March 28. Instead, join us for a special time of worship on March 29. We’ll share communion as we prepare together for Good Friday and Easter.

Resources for Lent
Looking for ways to connect as a family during Lent? Here are some great tools!
1. Go to for a free Lenten coloring resource from the same people who brought us the Praying in Color books.
2. Writing to God, Kids’ Edition by Rachel Hackenburg is a book full of ideas about how to pray through writing. We’ll be utilizing it again during our Lenten Pause study. Some kids might enjoy having their own copies!

Children’s Help Needed
It takes a lot of people to make children’s ministry great, and we appreciate everyone who invests time and energy into teaching our children about God’s love. Here are some upcoming ways that you can jump in and help:
1. Can you help with a Sunday evening study for children during Lent? Let Amanda know if you could join us in the Godly Play room from 6-7:30 on a Sunday night between February 18 and March 25.
2. Are you willing to buy candy and stuff Easter eggs? Our Easter celebration is a little late this year because of spring break, but we’ll need lots of eggs for our family party on Saturday, April 14. Let Amanda know if you’d like to help. No nuts please!
