MESSAGE, MUSIC & MOTION

 


The goal of Faithtime Kids Message, Music & Motion is to provide Christian education and foster a love for worship and adesire to use musical and artistic gifts for the glory of God.

      Faithtime resumes Wednesday, January 8! This month’s series is The Big Quiz – If you want to drop some knowledge, first you’ve got to start with what you DON’T know. After all, when you learn something new, you can be better at whatever you do. We will be following the beginning stories of Jesus and his ministry this month.

Message: Children will learn the foundational stories of faith from the Bible.

and to connect with their siblings in Christ in meaningful ways. They meet with Pastor Laura and a dedicated
team of adult mentors every Wednesday evening from 6-7:30 p.m. for a lesson about the Bible or the Small Catechism. They also work with Haylee Gustafson, Director of Youth & Family Ministry, to complete service

  • February’s book title is The Sweetness of Forgetting written by Kristin Harmel. At thirty-six, Hope

    McKenna-Smith is no stranger to bad news. She lost her mother to cancer, her husband left her for
    a twenty-two year old, and her bank account is nearly depleted. Her own dreams of becoming a lawyer
    long gone, she’s running a failing family bakery on Cape Cod and raising a troubled preteen. Now, Hope’s beloved French-born grandmother Mamie, who wowed the Cape with her fabulous pastries for more than fifty years, is drifting away into a haze of Alzheimer’s. But in a rare moment of clarity, Mamie realizes that unless she tells Hope about the past, the secrets she has held on to for so many years will soon be lost forever. Tantalizingly, she reveals mysterious snippets of a tragic history in Paris. And then, arming her
    with a scrawled list of names, she sends Hope to France to uncover a seventy-year-old mystery. Hope’s emotional journey takes her through the bakeries of Paris and three religious’ traditions, all guided by Mamie’s fairy tales and the sweet tastes of home. As Hope pieces together her family’s history, she finds horrific Holocaust stories mixed with powerful testimonies of her family’s will to survive in a world gone
    mad. And to reunite two lovers torn apart by terror, all she'll need is a dash of courage, and the belief that God exists everywhere, even in cake...Hurry and pick up a copy today and begin reading this international best-seller.
