June 6, 2021 Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time

We will have a Children’s (and Adults’) Story Time by Zoom, this Sunday, May 23rd 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.

Story Time Theme: Sowing the Seeds of Kindness

This Sunday at 9:30 AM we 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 book called The Big Umbrella by Amy June Bates. Amy was joined in writing this story by her seventh grade daughter, Juniper….who happens to love jumping in puddles! This simple story is about a big, red umbrella that always has enough room for everyone to fit under it during a rainstorm. If time allows, we will also read the book A Sick Day for Amos McGee, “a gently humorous tale of friendship and dedication.”

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!

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):
