Godly Play with Mother Barbara
Mondays (Weekly beginning April 20th through June 15th) at 4:30 pm
Young children and their parents are invited join me on Mondays at 4:30PM for a Godly Play lesson by zoom. We will begin by asking you and the children what you are most grateful for and what is the hardest thing, and we will pray. Then, I will share a Godly Play story with you, (told by a Godly Play trainer) and wonder with your children about it. After this time, we will stay together while the children do some work about the story with crayons, markers, or whatever arts and craft materials you have on hand. (It can be quite simple). We will conclude our time together by letting each child tell about his or her work and end with a prayer. I look forward to seeing you!
Here is a flexible schedule for the stories:
May 20: Jesus dies and God makes Jesus alive again
May 27: Jesus and the Twelve
May 4: The Good Shepherd and World Communion
May 11: The Synagogue and the Upper Room
May 18: Circle of the Holy Eucharist
May 26: Symbols of the Holy Eucharist
June 1: The Mystery of Pentecost
June 8: Paul’s Discovery
June 15: The Holy Trinity
Bible Study with Mother Barbara
Tuesdays (Weekly) beginning Tuesday, April 21 at 12pm
Tuesdays at noon you are invited to join a lectionary Bible study to explore the Gospel lesson for the following Sunday. We will read slowly through it together and explore questions, consternations, and discoveries.
Tuesdays and Thursdays (Weekly) beginning Tuesday, April 21st & Thursday, April 23rd
The offering of prayer late in the evening, by laity, religious orders or clergy, often called Compline, has sometimes been described as the ‘goodnight prayer of the Church’. It rounds off the day and prepares us for a quiet night. As the psalmist wrote:
I lie down in peace and take rest my rest
for it is in God alone that I dwell unafraid.
Night Prayer derives its content from the wisdom of the centuries in Scripture and above all in the psalms, but also from contemporary Christian experience of God. It celebrates the awareness that each of us who tries to pray is a part of the human whole. So we are taken over the threshold from daytime, not in a mood of self-centered spirituality, but as representatives of humanity, acknowledging our creaturehood before God.
Know all are welcome.

Conversation & Hors d’oeuvres Zoom Meeting Group
Day & Time: TBD
Food and good conversation always soothes the soul! So while we are “staying at home” let’s get together virtually and enjoy hors d’oeuvres, conversation and share some much needed laughs.
So that everyone can be able to share in conversation, each group should be no more than 10 people. If you are interested in attending a group, or would like to be the host, please email the church office and let me know so that I assist in setting up the meeting. Once we have enough volunteers, I will email the potential group to coordinate an agree able date and time.
