Hello Restoration Children and Families!
It has been SO good to see so many of you the last few weeks at church! I know some of you aren’t ready to head back yet, but I sure look forward to seeing you when you are able to return!
I know many have been asking when we will be able to return to having children’s activities on Sunday morning and Wednesdays. At this point, we aren’t certain because we aren’t certain about the logistics. Will we need to require face masks of the children? How will we accommodate keeping the kids 6 feet apart? (Or is that even possible?) There are so many questions. However, please know that we are doing research on all of these things and praying about the right time to resume our children’s activities.
In the meantime, I continue to do Sunday School virtually through the Facebook group called Restoration Church Children. Each week, I am sending more than 25 children the lesson activity pages, along with fun surprises sometimes. They can watch the Bible story video on Facebook, and then I do a live stream each Sunday morning to talk about the lesson. It usually lasts 5-10 minutes – just long enough to keep their attention!
We have also continued to deliver occasional surprises to people’s doorsteps, just to let the kids know we haven’t forgotten them! In May, there were donuts and matchbox cars. Be on the lookout for a fun envelope coming to your child the week of July 4th (warning, there’s confetti!).
As we plan and prepare for returning to activities, I will be contacting my volunteers to find out how they feel about everything and to begin making plans. Please be in prayer about how God may use you to help children learn about Him and how, through Him, we can experience joy in trials!
In Christ’s amazing love,
