Children's Worship or Sunday May 8, 2022

This week's theme is Mother’s Day - The Good Shepherd
The scripture is John

This week: Rev. Motoe Yamada Foor of Sacramento Japanese United Methodist Church greets the children and shares the message about how a Good Shepherd protects and cares for their sheep. Mort gives pastor Rod a special message--will he say, "yes"? Watch to the very, very end to find out!

Children's Worship is a free innovative online worship experience for children everywhere. 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! We hope to continue until July 1, 2022. 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”.
