Happy Sunday Faith Explorers families!

We have another virtual lesson ready for you this morning. I invite you all to take some time today to watch the video with your children as we stay connected as a church body during this crazy time.

Here are the steps for today’s lesson:

Step 1: Download The Lord’s Prayer words + “All God’s Critters” lyrics from your email

Step 2: “Click” on the WATCH button above to watch the video! Sunday, March 22, 2020

Step 3: Add to the Padlet by following this link: https://padlet.com/kidsmin1/Bookmarks

Step 4: Remember that you can always go back and like or comment on other’s posts on the Padlet!

If you are interested in being a part of our postcard initiate read more here:
Looking for a fun activity for your child to do? We are asking our Holy Trinity kids to mail postcards to those who are in home isolation right now. If you want your child to participate, please reply to this email. The steps are easy:
Your child will be assigned about 4 people to create postcards for. (If you want to do more, that is great too! Please indicate that in your reply.)
Your child can write a note or draw a picture! We ask that you include a little bit about you or your family so that the receiver can know who you are!
Mail it out! If you have trouble getting postcards or stamps, I am happy to drop these supplies off in your mailbox for you. Just let me know! 🙂
I think that doing this will bring a lot of joy to people who may need it most right now. As a community at HTLC, I know we can do some good for our people right now so I hope you will join me in this snail mail adventure!

God’s Peace be with you.

In Christ,
Alicia Spadaro
Children’s Ministry Coordinator

All God’s critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands,
or paws or anything they got now

Listen to the bass, it’s the one on the bottom
Where the bullfrog croaks and the
hippopotamus
Moans and groans with a big to do
And old cow just goes ‘moo’
MOOOOOO!

The dogs and the cats they take up the middle
The honeybee hums and the crickets fiddle
The donkey brays and the pony neighs
The old coyote howls
ooooOOOOOO

All God’s critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands,
or paws or anything they got now

Listen to the top where the little bird sings
The melody with the high voice ringing
The hoot owl hollers over everything
And the jaybird disagrees
M-M-M (shake finger)

Singing in the nighttime, singing in the day
The little duck quacks and he’s on his way
The ‘possum ain’t have much to say
And the porcupine talks to herself
Blah blah blah

All God’s critters got a place in the choir
Some sing low, some sing higher
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire
And some just clap their hands,
or paws or anything they got now

Everybody here is a part of the plan
We all get to play in the great critter band
From the eagle in the sky to the whale in the sea
It’s one great symphony

**********

Sample prayer for the end of the lesson.
