Friends,

Mrs. Heather and I are missing not seeing you at church, Sunday School, and Manna. We have decided to send this weekly newsletter every Friday to include the Sunday school lesson, a link to a video moment from one of us and a craft or activity idea. There might even be a challenge for you! There might be a prize even... Be sure to read to the bottom of this newsletter for details!

Children's Sunday School Classes
Ages 3-5K
Elementary Children

Grades 1-2
Grades 3-6
This week’s Sunday School lesson is about Jesus and his disciples preparing for Passover. Passover and the Feast of the Unleavened Bread were celebrated to remember the Israelites deliverance from Egyptian. It is said that when the Israelites fled Egypt, they left so fast that there was no time for bread to rise, so unleavened bread became a Passover tradition. We have included a recipe for unleavened bread that you can try at home – don’t worry if you don’t have whole wheat flour, regular all purpose flour will work just as well. Be sure to wash your hands well before you begin the recipe!
