Children & Youth Events
Trunk or Treat -- Saturday, October 30
Join us for our annual, outdoor Trunk or Treat at St. James the Less on Saturday, October 30 from 10-11AM! Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes and walk down the aisle of cars where we will have car and SUV trunks filled with treats.
After a trip down candy lane, children can paint their own pumpkins to bring home with them or enjoy a scavenger hunt.
Drop-In Sunday School
We invite your children to join us any week for our Mini Revolutions Sunday School for ages 4-12. Each Sunday at the start of worship, follow our SJTL Children & Youth Director for a socially-distanced activity that will include a bible story, discussion and an art project. Younger children are encouraged to color their special page in the Sunday Bulletin or enjoy the Children’s books in the narthex. Stay tuned for our Nursery Room to be back in action (ages 0-4), after we navigate updated COVID protocols.
Thanks to Christi and Paul Rose who will be hosting a potluck at their house on Friday, August 20 at 6:00 p.m. Families with kids that range from newborn-10 are invited. We will have childcare onsite with fun and games included. It’s our hope that this provides our busy parents with some time to converse, laugh and enjoy one another while the kids play and have a blast.
Tree of Hope
This Lenten season, we may ask ourselves, “How can I be an Instrument of Hope…for my family? For my workplace? For the community? For the world? ” As Christians, we are asked to nurture our own giftedness and share our talents with those around us. As we journey through Lent, we invite you to dream up how you might be an Instrument of Hope and express it on the SJTL Tree of Hope! With artistic tools of your choice—paint, fabric, markers, glitter glue—express yourself on one of our wooden circles and hang it on our sparkly tree—located right at the entrance on Sunset Ridge. The ornaments will transform the tree to a collage of colorful hues for our community, inspiring all who see it to become Instruments of Hope. We invite you to pick up a few circles for all the members of your household as well as a few to share with others. After decorating them, you can hang them directly on the Tree of Hope (or drop off to our office and we can do it for you!)
