Children's Worship for Sunday April 24, 2022

This week's theme is Jesus is Risen! 
The scripture is John 20:19-23

This week: Deacon Cheryl Gärlick shares a pop up book story with the children; Rev. Quentisha Davis Wiles of Pittsburg UMC recites the Lord's Prayer with her daughter; and Rev.

The production is a collaborative effort sponsored by the United Methodist Churches of the Sacramento Pentecost and Resurrection Circuits. The 15-20 minutes includes music, faith-based messages and special friends to meet--including a puppet called “Mort” ... video clips come from around our church family in Northern California and Nevada. The series started May 31, 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and stopped at the end of July 2021 (after 61 episodes) BUT due to the increase in Delta-variant cases, has started again for those children who cannot attend in-person church yet as well as for everyone else--young and old! Video contributions and monetary donations are welcome! If your church (or you) is willing to donate to this ministry, please send a check to First UMC, 2100 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95816 payable to First UMC, memo line: “Children’s Worship”.
