Sunday Children’s Messages during worship will be based on sharing of “The Bucket.”  Each week a decorated ice cream pail containing the readings for the following week  is sent home with a child.  Parents will read the Scriptures with the child and they will put something in the bucket that connects to one of the readings to share with others during worship. 

The next week, following the reading during worship on Sunday, children will be invited forward for a children’s message.  The child will share what they brought, and the pastor will connect a message of Good News for the children.  The intention is to encourage preparation for worship, reading Scripture as a family, and participation by children in worship.  (Instructions are also included in the bucket for those who take it home.)
