Children, Youth & Family Ministry
Kristen Morgan, Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministries
Things in our world have certainly changed over the past couple of weeks. I’ve been working hard to find resources that kids and their families can use at home to continue to form their faith, but also to continue to connect to each other as a community. These resources have been sent out in weekly emails and will continue to be sent that way-- but there’s also a web page that you can click on and get everything that was sent out in that week.
Here are just a few things I want to highlight:
First, we are live-streaming our 10:45am worship service.Here is the link to that information.
“Supporting Our Kids, Supporting Each Other.” An open conversation with parents who have kids of all ages, hosted by Kristen Morgan, Alexis Sheehan, and Eileen Sharbaugh.
We will meet Tuesdays at 12pm, and Fridays at 9am; click the link below to participate!
Godly Play Stories on YouTube.There are four videos recorded for your preK through 1st graders (and older!) so far….there will be two released every week.Just click the link to watch, and check your weekly email for new recorded stories.

Free Online Prayer Book. Here is a link to a very lovely (and free) Good Night Prayer Book link. The pictures are beautiful-- this is based on the service of Compline, which has been thought of as a bedtime prayer. https://issuu.com/churchpublishing/docs/candlewalk5?fr=sNmZhNjY3MDM3M
Do Faith At Home. Do Faith at Home is a wonderful website put together by Forward Movement and Forma.

Finally-- know that in this time of social distancing, it’s easy to get lonely and feel overwhelmed.If you need anything, even if it’s just to talk, Noah and Laura are always available and would love to talk with you about what’s going on in your lives.I’m available too, of course.Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need support.
