February 11 and March 3
Our service club for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will meet again on February 11 and March 3 at 11:30 a.m., so mark your calendars! In Feb, we will pack groceries in the Food Pantry and if the weather cooperates, we will walk them 4 blocks down Broad Street in grocery carts to deliver them to Cambridge Arms, senior living. Dress for the weather! (And Spoiler Alert, March 3 we will be stuffing eggs for the little kid Egg Hunt)
Sunday, February 11 at 9:15 a.m.
The whole church will be catching pancakes as we celebrate Mardi Gras the Sunday before Lent begins. This was always a kid favorite and we are happy it’s back!
Ash Wednesday Worship
We will have worship on Ash Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in-person and live streamed to Youtube. Children often pay attention and learn differently when church looks different and feels different, so consider worshipping with your children that evening as we start the season of Lent.
Lent Zooms & Devotions: Flower Power!
Some of us connected with our faith this Advent with Birds… and this Lent we invite you to use FLOWERS to deepen your spiritual journey. We will meet on Zoom Sundays in Lent at 7:00 p.m. where we will connect flowers to Lent AND pick up your bulb kit at church in the coming weeks to plant a new bulb or seed each week as part of our wait to Easter. Also, grab your set of cards in the narthex to pollinate the rest of your Lent with flower fun. All supplies will be available in the Narthex soon!
Holy Week Wax Museum
Sundays February 25, March 3, and March 10
During 10:30am worship, after children’s time
Littles to 5th graders
You have likely seen schools create Living Wax Museums. Children research a historical figure and present them together in one room as a Living Wax Museum. We will be doing a character study of the people in the holy week stories during Lent with the children. Then children will pick out a character to write a script for and do a little acting, dressing up, and such and we will present our Living Wax Museum on Palm Sunday. Since Palm Sunday is during many kid’s spring breaks, we likely will do this with video too so all can participate!
Sunday, April 7 - Monday, April 8
On April 8th there will be a total eclipse moving right through Ohio. Camp Christian in Marysville, (owned and run by the denomination Disciples of Christ, very in-line with the PC(USA)), will host a retreat for all ages with lodging, meals, and activities. Some of the activities will include s’mores, campfires, singing, crafts, a workshop on best camera settings to photograph the eclipse, and vespers worship. They will provide eclipse viewing glasses too! All registration and payments are through Camp Christian, but email Brittany if you signed up so we know which Broad Streeters we expect to see!
