REPORT FROM FAMILY DAY EVENT!
We met up at 10:15 at the We-6 Ranch Cantina and set out on our walk just after 10:30 following Pastor Dayna's opening prayer. Each of the Sunday School youth had a canvas
bag to collect along the way. AT each station there was a scripture and an item to collect leading up to the crucifixion (coins, whips, crosses, dice, nails, cloth, and
If the youth didn't collect a bagged item at the stop, they collected a rock to symbolize their sin that related to that item. As we got to the
end of the trail the individual crosses the youth had painted here set up next to the large cross Jesus had died on.
As we got to the large cross the youth
dumped their sins and placed their crosses into their canvas bags. Pastor Dayna lead us in closing prayer. When we returned the individual crosses were added to
the large cross and the items were divided between the youth to make Holy Week Globes.
We had 12 youth, ages 1 year to 18 years, and 18 adults participate.
