Babies/Toddlers pray and play

Posted on

The following is a message from Mary Ellen Mitchell:

It seems like a great time to put the newly re decorated children’s room to more use. My thought is some kind of “play and pray” activity for the 0-5 crowd, that would be kind of like library story time meets sunday school. After talking with some other parents, I’ve also sensed a need for more structured time for kids to share faith together in VC, so I thought this might be an easy start.

We’ll try every 2nd and 4th Tuesday, starting June 8th

11:30 -12:00 (packed) lunch together
12:00-12:30 Story time/ Activity
12:30-1 Open play

I would be willing to put together the first couple of stories/ activities and then maybe different parents could take turns. It wouldn’t have to be anything big, just a story, maybe a bible verse, a song and/or a prayer.
