K--5th Graders and Youth: “What is a Minister?” Children’s/ Youth Chapel – with Emily and Katie. Children will reflect on how they have grown (using the growth chart, remember?) with Rev. Lydia in the first part of the service in the sanctuary. Then, youth and children will leave the sanctuary for the Chapel to reflect on what a Minister does. If there is crowding in the sanctuary, we suggest that children share seats so there is room for everyone on this welcome back Sunday for Rev. Lydia.
