Lenten activities on Wednesday evenings

Wednesday evening Lenten activities begin March 13. We’ll have soup suppers, rehearsals for our spring children’s play, and an adult faith formation series.

Lenten soup suppers

Everyone is welcome at our Lenten soup suppers at 5:30 p.m. A brief worship time follows just before 6 p.m.

Children’s play rehearsals

Children’s rehearsals during Lent are from 6 to 7:15 p.m. This year’s show, “I’m Back…”, will be performed during worship April 28. The play will be performed by kids 7 to 16. It tells the tale of a group of children who find a homeless man sleeping in the sanctuary of their church who says he is Jesus! The children try to determine if it really is Jesus. If so, why is he back, and how can they help?

Margot Olsen wrote and will direct the show. She is a local theatre/music teacher/artist and member of Falcon Heights Church, UCC. Rehearsals are March 13, 20 and 27, and April, 3, 10, 17 and 24. There’s a possible dress rehearsal April 25 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For information or to sign up, contact Margot at margot@olsenfamilycircus.

Adult Lenten discussion group

Adults will meet from 6 to 7:15 p.m. during play practice to discuss Media Literacy. What does it mean for our kids and for us as adults? We’ll continue a discussion that began in First Hour adult faith formation around use of media by children. We’ll explore media literacy through a series of videos and discussions to give us the tools to decide how we and our kids should be interacting with media. Watch the first video before play practice begins and bring your questions to the discussion each Wednesday night after supper.
