Learning to be God's light in the world!
The lesson this week is about Jesus and the woman at the well based on John 4:5-42. This story shows Jesus speaking to another gender in public and one who was a Samaritan. This wasn’t socially acceptable to do in public in his day. But clearly the event is recorded to illustrate that
Jesus’s approach to women and foreigners is radically different from the religious customs that surround him. This text also is where Jesus reveals himself as the Messiah.
Come to our last mental health discussion in children and youth on March 12. This will be from 10-11 a.m. and take place in the Faith Formation Office (on the second floor of the church near the Sunday School classrooms).
On March 19, the congregation will be creating care packages for residents in Washington Highlands, a community in Southeast D.C. that has been hard hit from the economic fallout of the pandemic. If you can help with this project, bring in laundry detergent (if liquid, containers need to be 64 oz or smaller) and place it in the blue bins in the Fireside Room.
The Sunday School children and teachers meet from 10-11 a.m. each Sunday. Sunday School meets in room 101 for a large group gathering before breaking into classes based on grade. While the kids are attending Sunday School, parents are invited to adult faith formation classes (Up for Discussion meets in the Media Center and a class with the pastors will be coming soon) or to meet for coffee, tea, and treats and conversation with other parents and church members on the patio.
Register your child now for Sunday School here. Registering helps Sunday School teachers prepare lessons and know who and how many kids to expect.
Mask guidance varies by the health situation and is determined by the Saint Luke Covid-19 Advisory Committee. Currently, masks are strongly encouraged, though not required, inside the church building and are optional outside. Signs are posted at the entryway doors regarding masking and information is also available on the Saint Luke listserv.
In addition to the suggestions about the lesson above, the videos and other lesson material below are helpful tools when talk to children about this scripture.
