This Thursday we will have a special online devotional led by Pastor John. During that video devotional, John will lead us in a special celebration of communion. Please gather some communion elements for that time - bread and juice.
Parents draw a large heart that fills an entire piece of paper and ask your children to either draw pictures or write out things that are important to them. Talk to your children about ways they can put Christ first in everything and if we put Christ first it helps us have a better life.
