Children & Family Pandemic Resources

Listed on this page are a few of our favorite resources for children and families! Some are just for fun and some have ideas for prayers and other activities that children and families can do to enrich their spiritual journey during the weeks and months that we are unable to gather in person for worship and Christian Formation due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Children’s worship bulletins from The Illustrated Ministry will be added every Friday for the upcoming Sunday.

A Children’s Liturgy of the Word video will also be added each week along with occasional Godly Play stories and links to educational YouTube videos. We hope you will watch these stories together as a family as we gather virtually to be fed and encouraged by the stories of God’s love in the world.

New resources will continue to be added in the days and weeks ahead. We hope you will let us know what is most helpful to you and your children!
