Sunday | Mar 22, 2015 | Fifth Sunday in Lent
We're skipping ahead, but it's Holy Week during Sunday School! Melissa will continue preparing ECLC kids for Palm Sunday's procession and worship service, and lessons are about Easter. Parents of Lambs will also be talking this week about Easter for pre-preschoolers. Easter play-doh charades are available for anyone looking for something a little different. Don't forget to get kids the "worry stones" they made week before last, on the table outside my office.
It's also big week for our GR 6-8 families! We're kicking-off preparations for our All-Night. Over-Night @ECLC LOCK-IN, April 10-11. Families are also making decisions about Luther Point Summer Camp, June 14-19. And, Saturday is our annual Confirmation Retreat with youth and their parents, from 9am-3pm. We will begin and end this day at ECLC, with a poverty simulation led by GMMS; head to the Global Market for lunch; and onward to St. Paul's Lutheran, where we will hear a young person's immigration experience. It should be a great day of being church together.
One more thing! Please remember to collect children's offerings for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, to furnish at least one bedroom (bed, desk, dresser, bedding, lamp) for a migrant child. We have a long way to go in meeting our goal.
