May 2, 2021 Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time

We will have a Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time by Zoom, this Sunday, April 25th at 9:30 AM—Please spread the word about this event.  Children can attend from anywhere and adults are welcome, too!

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 or skit or story with the children by emailing us at unitedchurchofstrafford@gmail.com.

New Story Time Theme: Sowing the Seeds of Kindness
This Sunday at 9:30am, please join Joey Hawkins and Danette Harris as they continue our spring story series that is just in time for the sprouting of all kinds of things in our gardens: Sowing the Seeds of Kindness. We have selected a wide variety of stories to share that depict children, adults and even animals showing loving kindness towards one another.
This week, we will share a new favorite story entitled Tarra and Bella by Carol Buckley. Tarra is an elephant who retired from a life of show business and came to live in the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee. She strikes up a most unlikely friendship with Bella, a feisty stray dog who appears out of nowhere.  “Even when calamity struck and Bella was hurt, Tarra and Bella got through it by sticking together.” This is truly a heartwarming story that will leave all who hear it smiling from this example of kindness and friendship.
Children of all ages are welcome to join us for the story and a short, informal discussion afterwards when we will focus on the thoughts of the children.
We hope that you can join us!
