Hi parents, 
I hope that this message finds you safe and happy in your homes.  Hopefully many of you were able to watch the Easter service on Sunday.  The resurrection story is really a story of hope.  Even during this time of global pandemic, we can reflect on the example that Jesus’ life shows to us.  He was a servant.  He lived to serve us even through His death and resurrection.  He wants us to be servants as well.  When we serve others, we are serving Him.

  • This is a great message to share with your children.  To read Mark 10: 42-45 and have discussion with your family, click here.  There is a nice video to go along with it. 
  • If you are looking for some ways to share Random Acts of Kindness with your children, click here.
  • Please keep dropping off toiletries in the bin outside the glass doors for families in need.  Every item helps! 

It makes me so happy to hear about the fun things that you are doing at home with your kids. The Wolf family enjoyed making Resurrection Rolls together last week (as seen in the picture).  I think that they nailed it!  Feel free to send in some pictures that you might like to share with others.

Take care of each other.
