Children's Formation
This week, Sunday, April 10, the children will be playing outside (weather permitting) or watching a video in the youth room, having their own Spring Social, the youth will be supervising.
 
On Sunday, April 17 all will learn about the Lost Sheep. The fourth Sunday of Easter is commonly called sheep Sunday because the collect (prayer for the day) uses the phrase, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd and we usually hear one of the stories from scripture that focuses on that image of Jesus. 
 
Youth Formation
This Sunday, April 10 the youth will be supervising the children during the formation time - weather permitting out in the playground or watching videos in the youth room. Either way there will be treats and fun involved.
 
On Sunday, April 17 the youth will gather in the youth room to discuss some of the images used to describe Jesus - this week we will focus on Jesus as the Good Shepherd.
