Find the livestream here on our Scattered Church page. There will be a special Godly Play story told, with help from some of our children! You can also find it below, (but save it for worship first so the children can hear it there.)

Holy Week Saturday at home

EASTER SCAVENGER HUNT: Join us today for an Easter Family Scavenger Hunt at 11 am for parents and children. We will gather online to hear the story of Easter. Children will go hunting for items in their homes to help us remember and retell the story. Find the link in your email or the Coffee Talk Facebook group.

HOLY WEEK WALK: Walk through the events of this holy week with this telling from our friends at First Presbyterian Church in Dallas. You might want to listen while you take a walk around your neighborhood. There are a few pictures, but mostly scripture and sound, and this would make a lovely prayer walk for Saturday.

Holy Week Maundy Thursday at home

Watch the Godly Play story of the Last Supper , and then wonder together.

Wonder together:

  • I wonder how it felt to be around this table and to hear Jesus say, “Take, eat, this is my body broken for you”?
  • I wonder what Jesus could really mean?
  • I wonder if you have ever been close to a table like this?
  • I wonder how it would feel to have Jesus wash your feet?
  • I wonder how we can love each other like that?

Participate in our Maundy Thursday service at home. It includes a simple service of hand washing, for all ages. Find it on our FPCA Scattered Church webpage.
