As our worship continues week by week, St. Mary’s would like to offer this opportunity for some downloadable resources for our younger members to use at home, as we participate in our worship from a safe space.
This week we have posted a children’s video presentation focusing on this Sunday’s Gospel for the 7th Sunday after Pentecost. The Gospel Story, from Matthew 13: 24-30, shares words from Jesus as he tries to teach his followers using parables with seeds and weeds. Jesus challenges his disciples to not pull out weeds, but to leave them till he calls to bring in the harvest. Jesus invites us as the church, to step back from judging and determining what is a weed, and instead, focus on planting his seeds in our world. Please enjoy our Sunday activities below, including a video about what it really means to be God’s church in the world, as you help your youth explore these themes.
Have a Blessed Sunday!
