We will have a Children’s Story Time by Zoom, this Sunday July 19th at 10:00 AM—Please spread the word about this event. Children can attend from anywhere.
One of our teenage childcare providers will read aloud and discuss a beautiful, beloved, classic book. (Pastor Tom Kinder will be there, too—he is the zoom host, and it’s one of his favorite activities!)
We will be offering these story times whenever we have a volunteer to lead it. Please let us know if you would like to share a favorite book with the children by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week the story is:
The folktale Stone Soup is a classic about villagers who make soup from a stone (and lots of other ingredients!) and learn something about the benefits of sharing in the process.
Hope to see you there!
Please join us at 10:00 AM on Sunday morning, July 19th, on line on Zoom:
