Burying and Raising Alleluias is an event for everyone involved in the Children’s Ministry. We will be coming together, socially distant, to begin our Lenten journey this year! If you are unable to make it or feel more comfortable doing it at home, please reach out to Josh so he can get you the supplies. We will be decorating clay pots as we “bury” seed paper that we have drawn on. During Lent, as we reflect on our relationship with God we will see our seed paper begin to grow, just as our relationship with God grows.
The Lenten tradition of burying the Alleluia was started by churches hundreds of years ago as a tangible way to mark the beginning of Lent and to honor the reflective nature of the season. The idea of this event will be to “Bury” the Alleluia and on Easter we will “Raise” the Alleluia.
When: February 20, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Where: Southminster Presbyterian Church in the CFC What Will We Be Doing: Decorating clay pots to “bury our alleluias” that will be on seed paper and watch them grow during Lent so they will “raise” or bloom on Easter Sunday.
