Children's Formation ... Sharing our Faith
This Sunday - February 15 - the children will begin to learn about Joseph - the Old Testament Joseph - who had the coat of many colors and dreamed dreams. This week the children will hear about his struggles with his brothers and becoming an interpreter of Pharaoh's dreams. On the day of the annual meeting the children will view the movie Prince of Egypt and the following week in classes we will hear more about his reunion with his family and how the Hebrew people came to live in Egypt.
Youth Formation ... Growing our Faith
The Coffee House is open this Sunday, February 15 and our discussions will be on relationships.
Don't miss a great time to be with youth from all over Montgomery County as well as an opportunity to learn about the justice issues surrounding homelessness on March 7-8 as youth gather for the Welcome Table at the Church of the Epiphany in downtown DC. Details of this event are in the Trailblazer and have been sent via email to youth and parents. The deadline to sign-up is next Sunday.
It isn't too early to be thinking about sending your children or youth to camp this summer. I spent a day at the camp for Middle School students last summer. It is a great facility in southern Maryland and it sure looked like everyone was having a great time, learning and growing in faith and the staff was great. The cost for the week is $575 per camper. You can register online here.
Junior Camp (Rising 4th -6th graders) - July 26-31, 2015.
Middler Camp (Rising 7th- 9th graders) - August 2-7, 2015
