Children’s Ministries May 2018 Newsletter

posted in: Children's Ministries | 0

Here is an update on St. Thomas’s Children’s Ministries.

May 20 was the last day of regular Sunday School until September.

From May 27 to September 2, the St. Thomas’s nursery for children aged birth to 3 years will be open from 10:15 to the end of the 10:30 a.m. service.

Summer Children’s Worship for children 3 years and older will begin on June 10 and run through August 19. Our summer theme this year is “The Fruit of the Spirit,” based on Galatians 5:22-23 (But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control). Each week, we will learn about a different spiritual gift through scripture lessons, stories, hands-on play/art activities, service projects, and/or take home assignments to promote real life applications of the fruit of the Spirit. On most Sundays this summer (when children’s worship leader is available), children are invited to the Undercroft from 10:30-11:10 a.m. The children will rejoin their families at the Peace. On some Sundays (when a children’s worship leader is not available), children will remain with their families and are invited to complete the activity in the Fruit of the Spirit bags found in the basket by the sanctuary door.

St. Thomas’s is not planning to host Vacation Bible School (VBS) this summer. But stay tuned to your email for information about VBS in other area churches.

Regular Sunday School will resume on September 9, 2018. If you have questions, need more information, or would like to volunteer to help this summer, please contact Belinda Young-Payne at 302-388-4017 or
