During Advent and Christmas, our preschool Sunday School class began collecting children’s books for the Storybook Prison Ministry that is sponsored by Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. We have received a wonderful thank you letter from the director of that program, Gail Beard. The letter is posted on the bulletin board in the narthex of the church for our congregation and guests to read and also see the picture of a young man who is reading one of the books provided by the program.
On March 6th, during our Sunday School hour, we will be having a Lenten decorating party. The color will be purple and we will make crafts that reflect our Lenten theme and decorate our liturgical tree. Pastor Barb will bring a special “show and tell” to help us learn about Lent and Ash Wednesday. Come join the fun and learn about the new church season coming up.
