Lenten Activity for Children

Next Friday, March 1, is our monthly Sprouts (those students in grades 1 – 5) gathering.  We are now in the season of lent, which is a time of reflection, prayer and service in preparation for the holiness of Good Friday and the joy of Easter Sunday.  For Sprouts this month, we will lead the children through two prayer activities.  First, they will walk a labyrinth which is a single, winding path that gradually circles in on itself.  Second, they will make prayer cubes, which are six-sided dice, essentially.  On each side will be a prayer that could be said before dinner.  (There will be an opportunity for the child to substitute a grace that is traditionally said at his or her dinner table for one of the six.)  When the kids complete them, they will be able to take them home and use them to choose the grace before dinner.

Speaking of dinner, as usual, dinner is included.  The evening will run 6-7:30 pm.  We’d love to see your children and any of their friends that they want to bring.
