Stations of the Cross

Today was a Kids in the Kingdom Sunday and thanks to creative and hard-working moms, we once again had a kid-appropriate stations experience with object lessons along the way. While the story of Jesus' passion and death are not easy to share with children, doing so is the only way to give them the hope of the resurrection and the fullness of what we believe as Christians, so I am thankful to Kelly, Amber, and Rhonda for making this happen and to Melissa, Gina, Kristen and Geoff who also helped on site, as well as Victoria and Griffin for getting lunch.

peace,
Frank+
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor


Getting underway at the first station.


Working our way along the trail.


Wripping a piece of cloth to share with the kids after talking
about Jesus' being stripped of his garments.


Showing a large nail while telling how
Jesus' forgave those who killed him.


Feeling the nail and laying out the objects.


Going back over all the objects and their meanings.

    The pictures are awesome! We don't get to see the expressions on ALL of the children's faces while we're handing out the props. We're all standing behind the children while Father Frank is explaining each station. So, THANK YOU Amber, you did a great job capturing each moment in time!!! :) New day job maybe? :)

    Wow, what an awesome idea! The pictures were great. We see Christ in the faces of the children. You have created a wonder way for people who are curious about what Christians do and what Christians look like for those who seek to know what this life is all about. Thanks be to God! Tar+
