I hope you have taken a look at our OWL tree in the narthex. There is an owl for each child who has come to Sunday School on it. Perhaps you have seen it our St. Paul’s Face Book page.
For those of you who saw the owls early on after they were hung on the tree, you may have noticed that two things were missing from the owls.
So, maybe you asked, “Why are the owls missing wings and ears?”
Right you are! They are missing wings and ears.
“How will they get them?” you ask. I am glad you asked.
The kids will get owl partners. When they help their partner, they will get a wing to represent their continued growth in being a follower of Jesus. The goal is for each child to get two wings, and of course to continue to help each other. Each child will put cut-outs of their hand prints on his or her owl. When each child participates in Sunday School with a bible verse or other information from the Bible, they will get an ear. Two shares equals two ears.
Please ask our Sunday School owls what our theme is this year. This year, Sunday School will HOOT for the Lord. We are HOOT OWLs:
Help Open Our Thinking Our Wise Lord! HOOT, HOOT!
Our owls are very lucky to have such a dedicated “owlery team” to help them experience God’s wonderful world. Team Sunday School is an awesome team! Please ask these remarkable Team Sunday School members for their thoughts on Team Sunday School. I bet they will have a positive word to share with you. We wouldn’t have Team SS without them, to be sure:
Marisa Bozarth, Trish Colbridge, Elaine Jardine, Agnes Kimball, Steve Louie, Laurie Maccri, Jen McLaren, Sandy Sambucci, Krissy Soltesz, and Robin Sperry.
At St. Paul’s, “Help Open Our Thinking Our Wise Lord! HOOT HOOT!”
