A Message from Rev. Steph McClellan, WICC Board President
Dear Praying Sisters,
I am so excited to be able to share a project of my heart. A friend, Rev. Catherine Stuart, and I worked together to create Kids Pray Too! World Day of Prayer Service, available via YouTube.
It is a service led by, for and with young people and those who love them across Canada. Since WDP went virtual, we thought it created a nice opportunity to celebrate virtually, with kids, as well. Link: https://youtu.be/ivw_SoFav3U
Content includes songs, prayers, craft, cooking in the kitchen, children’s story, intro to Vanuatu, and questions to ponder. A detailed index to the link content is below.
Please enjoy this gift and feel free to promote it where you see fit: summer Bible camps, Sunday School, as a template for 2022 services for kids and much, much more!
Though far from perfect, it is perfectly joyful!
We hope you love it!
PS – Please submit the name of your WDP 2022 coordinator, and email address, if not already sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
