Because our Easter celebration in Garret Park was so awesome, we thought we’d share some highlights with you! We had so many friends stop by our MungerKids table and make egg maracas so they could joyfully join in Easter worship. We handed out hundreds of Family Guides to the Gospel of Mark. We hope you … Continue reading What’s Next?
This may be a silly question, but do you know how to invite someone to church? Though it may be a silly thing to ask, I thought this was a good time to ask it. People are more open to attending church on Easter because, whether or not they have attended church in the past, … Continue reading I Invited My OBGYN
Last Sunday we all celebrated Palm Sunday together as one church. The children always bring so much joy with them! They love to be a part of worship not just passive observers. After worship our Confirmation Class put on a play for all the preschool and elementary children about the Holy Week. *Big thank you … Continue reading Palm Sunday
Because we at Munger Kids love encouraging family fun and learning through experiences (e.g. we used our Resurrection Eggs last Sunday during class), we thought we’d offer another easy, hands-on project you can do with your kids to reinforce the Easter story.

Do they know why there is a palpable joy in the air on Easter … Continue reading How To Prepare For What’s Coming Next

So in my seven years being a mom I have set out to do a lot of “fun, yet meaningful” activities with my children to teach them about a Bible story, a holiday or a season.

We just kept going with regular lessons, but now that we’ve taken the reigns, we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on this important season. Here’s why: Lent is a … Continue reading Sacrificing Some Time for Lent
When I was a child, I remember hearing grown ups say that time just kept going faster. Someone would say “where does the time go?”, while I was bored out of my mind watching grass grow.
