February 28, 2021 Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time

We will have a Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time by Zoom, this Sunday, February 28th at 9:30 AM—Please spread the word about this event.  Children can attend from anywhere and adults are welcome, too!

Danette Harris and Joey Hawkins will read aloud and discuss the beautiful, meaningful book described below.  (Pastor Tom Kinder will be there, too—he is the zoom host, and it’s one of his favorite activities!)

We will be offering story time 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 unitedchurchofstrafford@gmail.com.

Children of all ages are welcome to join Joey Hawkins and Danette Harris this Sunday from 9:30-10:00 AM.. We are very excited to dig into our new theme for Lent: Stories That Feed Us.  We will be serving up a wide range of the best, most beloved stories we know, and exploring what we can learn from each one.   We will see why a great story is like manna from heaven in the wilderness, a gift that fills and nourishes us.

This week we will share the beloved book Old Turtle by Douglas Wood. This award winning story is “an enchanting fable for children and adults, (which) promotes a deeper understanding of the earth and our relationship with all the beings who inhabit it”.  Not only is the story inspiring, the illustrations by Cheng-Khee Chee are absolutely stunning!

The story will be followed by a short discussion where we will focus on the thoughts of the children. All are welcome to join us, and be sure to come hungry for a story that can truly feed us, nourishing our heart, mind and soul!

Here is the Zoom link (note that it is the same as the Sunday morning Live Service at 10:00 and Joys and Concerns at 10:30):
