The Children's Music Ministry Presents "A Not So Terrible Parable"

By Pastor Cindy Marino

Join us Friday, May 12, at 6:30 p.m. and again, Sunday, May 14, at 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary to witness the solving of a great mystery!

The mystery is, how do we make Grace UMC a welcoming place for kids and their families?

The answer? By appreciating their hard work as they share their enthusiasm in this year’s musical, “A Not So Terrible Parable!”

The Children’s Music Ministry will offer “A Not So Terrible Parable” Friday, May 11, at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 14, at 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary. This well-known parable of Jesus, the Good Samaritan, comes to life as a fun, over-the-top whodunit (think Clue). There’s mystery … danger … surprise … and truth as we share in the spring sermon series that teaches us about “The Art of Neighboring.”

The kids have learned their roles through many hours of hard work and rehearsal. It truly is a labor of love for our Children's Music Ministry Staff. Their roles, as coach, cheerleader, teacher and friend, cultivates these young disciples' love for our church week after week. Your role, by comparison is an easier one, but no less important! All you have to do is make the time to be there for them and for their proud families. Show God’s children the joy of hard work by appreciating them as valued members of the Grace church family. With so many expectations placed upon them in this competitive world, and so many distractions vying for their time, isn’t it great to know these families have chosen Grace? We certainly don’t take that for granted. Whether or not kid’s musicals are ‘your thing,’ help to encourage the next generation of engaged and loving Christians; witness to "our" kids with your presence, as they share their love for God and their neighbor. Phone a friend or text a neighbor and invite them to meet you. Make Mother's Day extra special by supporting the hard work of all our youngest disciples. Grace is the place for gathering in Christ, growing in love for God and neighbor and going in the Holy Spirit to live and serve.
