Sunday, April 18 at 11 to 12 p.m. on the First Lutheran Lawn
This event is for preschool and elementary-school children and their parents. We will be doing mindfulness practices (think yoga poses in game-style and breathing techniques) from Tracy Daniel’s book Mindfulness for Children: 150+ Mindfulness Activities for Happier, Healthier, Stress-Free Kids. We will also be doing mindfulness games that will help us get in balance with our bodies and snacks will be provided!
Mindfulness is a way to connect to your body and your mind in a way that is relaxing and fun. It is good for when you feel moody, stressed, or just need to relax. These practices are great ways for your children to settle their bodies after long hours in front of screens. We hope this will be a helpful resource for you during this stressful pandemic time, but also activities that you can use whenever you need them.
Challenge Accepted! During the month of April, we will be collecting food to feed those in need. To celebrate bringing worship back into our Sanctuary, Pastor Travis has challenged us to collect 2021 pounds of food! Care and Share is currently in need of peanut butter, canned fruit, canned tuna, and canned vegetables. Once we begin worship in our Sanctuary on April 11, you will find the collection containers near our outdoor coffee and lemonade reception. Each Friday we will deliver what we’ve collected to Care and Share and update the congregation on our progress!
There’s also an online component for those wishing to make a donation. Our goal is 2021 pounds of food and 2021 dollars donated. Here’s the link to donate. Care Drive – Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado (flipcause.com)
