Starting on July 2, I will be trying something different during the Children's Message. A box is in the narthex. Children (and parents too) can please whatever items fit into the box. At the time of the Children's Message, I will open the box. I will reach in and out an item. Using this mystery item, I will preach a message. I will need to keep on my toes, no doubt. There is even the potential of "stumping the pastor." We will see. It promises to be a lot of fun.
Kids, be creative. With your parent's permission, find something to bring in each week. Who knows, your item could be the 'mystery item' that I pick out of the box.
I am looking forward to seeing what happens. It will be an adventure, no doubt.
