KIDS’ WEEKLY LESSONS & ACTIVITIES FROM DONNA

Hey kids –  this Sunday is Reformation Sunday – a day when we remember a man named Martin Luther who, over 500 years ago, nailed to the door of his church a list of 95 things he thought the church should change.  He hoped the church would “reform” and improve the way it taught and worked with the people.  Here is a YouTube link to watch a brief story about Martin Luther:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tox2TflUH90 and I’ve attached a Luther Rose coloring page for you to have fun with!

This Sunday at Olivet, we also celebrate our high school freshmen as they make their Affirmation of Baptism at the 11:00 service.  I hope you will watch as these young people affirm their Lutheran faith, read their favorite Bible verse and tell why the verse is important in their lives.  It won’t be long before you will be doing that as well!  We recorded the confirmands reading their Bible verses and statements this year, and they will be also be shown in place of the sermon at the 9:00 service.   Please pray for these young people as they continue in their faith journey!

See you on Sunday!
