Children
Mary's Story: Children will learn the story that unfolds in the New Testament which begins with a visit by the angel Gabriel to an innocent young girl in a country town. Mary seems an unlikely person with whom to begin the story. Yet the fact that that the story unfolds in this way shows us that God loves us and that Jesus was born for all people regardless of who they are, their age, or where they live.
Luke 1:26-38, 46 - 47

THOUGHT OF THE WEEK
"This is the most challenging activity that humans get into, which is love. You know, where we have the sense that we can't live without love. That life has very little meaning without love. 
"
