"Who's Our Family?" Sunday Children's Ministry

As people of faith, who’s our family? That’s the question United’s kids (and grandkids) explore this summer. Each Sunday, after checking out the Children’s Garden’s bounty for the Food Depot, they’ll explore who they’re connected to as part of God’s family—and use their hands and hearts to care for others, just as God does.  

June 23 - Who’s Our Family? Everyone!    

Just as Jesus did, our church is called to welcome and love others. This Sunday, the children    make cards for all United’s LBGTQIA+ members and friends.  

June 30 - Who’s Our Family? Those Who Are Ill or Alone  

The Gospels are filled with stories of Jesus healing people who were sick or alone. United’s kids    make cards to go in the Communion bags to be delivered next Sunday.

July 7 – Who’s Our Family? All Creation    

To see God, Jesus said, look at the birds and the flowers. United’s kids     explore United’s flowers, bushes, and birds to see how they see God.  

July 14 –  Who’s Our Family? People from Other Countries    

Jesus welcomed and cared for people from different countries and    cultures and told us to do the same. On Folk Art Sunday, our kids help    assemble hygiene kits for people around the world.  

July 21 –  Who’s Our Family? People Who Have Different Ideas    

The people who followed Jesus—like the disciples or Mary and Martha— didn’t always agree. But Jesus loved them all. How do we love those with whom we disagree?

 July 28 –  Who’s Our Family? People Who Help Us!    Even Jesus had to depend on others—like a foreign woman who helped him get water. Who    helps us in the church and how do we thank them?
