Let’s Pray With Kids and For Kids

January 28, Kids at WoW! Take a night off from cooking and bring your kids/grandkids/neighbor families to Worship on Wednesday. Dinner: 6-6:45 p.m. We’ll have tasty nitrite-free hot dogs and buns. If you aren’t bringing kids, please bring fruit or a salad or cookies to share–homemade or deli. (Kid-bringers can bring something too!) Worship: 7-7:30 p.m. Now that we’ve celebrated Christmas and Epiphany, we’ll be remembering that Jesus and his family had to live in Egypt to be safe, and that Jesus, even as a boy, loved to be in the temple talking about God with other people. We’ll sing a couple songs then visit prayer stations that focus on how much God loves all kids, and where we can pray for children everywhere. If you aren’t bringing kids, please come and pray for at-risk children and our church’s outreach to families. WoW is an informal midweek time to share food, conversation, and worship that celebrates church seasons in contemplative forms of worship.
