Fall Youth Retreat: Ed Sheeran + God

Sunday, October 21 – Children’s Sabbath
Kids lead morning Worship! Email [Laurel . cluthe @holmeswood .org] if your child/youth would like to participate in reading, praying, music playing or sharing some other gift during Worship!
Children’s Sabbath was created by The Children’s Defense Fund and Marian Wright Edelman as a way for faith communities around the US to address the most pressing needs of US children and also study Scripture and sacred text that calls for people to love and protect children. In turn, we honor children this day to make year-round plans to uphold justice and create action to protect ALL children around the country. And it starts with our children leading the charge for change. More info here: https://www.childrensdefense.org/programs/faith-based/childrens-sabbath-celebration/
