Good morning, I’m Staci Gower, Christian Education coordinator here at St. Matthew’s.
Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day!
Miss Connie is teaching today’s virtual Sunday School lesson about Pentecost. She has an animated video, song, activities, and craft for you to do. I can’t believe it, but today is our last lesson. Which means that next Sunday is our gathering in the grove at 10:30 a.m. We will have a snack, play games, make a craft, and hand out goody bags to the kids who participated in Sunday School this year. Bring the family!
Instead of a Bible story today, I would like to share this one by P.D. Eastman. It is called Are You My Mother? (See pictures below.)
I love this story because of the special bond between the mother and the bird. At birth, the baby knew it needed its mom. He met a few different animals and piece of machinery before he was united with mom. He did not lose faith. Instead he knew undoubtedly that she was around somewhere.
Like how we know God is near us and watching over us every day.
Now with your loud voice, let’s tell the women in the congregation to have a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Let us pray: Dear God, thank you for all the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, Godmothers, and other special women who raise us and impact who we become. They are with us through the good times and the bad. Their unconditional love is what helps us bloom. Today and every day, watch over them and guide them. Let them know how grateful we are to have them in our lives. In your name, we pray AMEN.
May the peace of Christ be with you and your family.
Read Staci Gower's "Kids Message" from our Sunday service. Then when you are done, color the cool coloring pages and do the fun activities. If you want, when you are finished, email a picture of your coloring page to Staci Gower at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll make sure it gets posted on our website!
Your pictures make everyone smile!
