Resources to Help Children in Times of Tragedy
Leader Resources provides valuable information to share with children and we thought you might want to avail yourself of their resources. The tragic news from Sandy Hook is a reminder of the transitory nature of life. And it is especially painful when the victims are young children.
Because so many of our programs are designed to support the Christian development of children and teenagers, we are moved to call your attention to two free resources available at our web site. These resources are designed to help parents, teachers, clergy and others have a conversation about tragic event in a way that is honest and that seeks to explain, comfort, and reassure.
Click HEREto go to their website. At the top of the page, you will find links to two documents that you may duplicate and distribute:
1) How to Talk to Children and Teens about Tragedy, and
2) a list of resources we compiled from various sources.
Blessings as you minister to your children and families during this Christmas season.
Food Bank Volunteers Needed
The Canton Food Bank needs volunteers especially to help staff the Tuesday morning Food Bank from 8:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. If you are unable to help on Tuesdays, perhaps you could help by shopping for the food bank at your convenience. Just think, a few hours a month working at the Canton Food Bank would not only be lovely Christian outreach, but it would take the strain off of the few people who keep this much needed outreach running. Please call Peggy Pinton at 693-2024.
Nestled in historic Collinsville on the Farmington River, Trinity Episcopal church is a parish that welcomes all people, no matter who you are or how you arrive at our door.
We are outreach centered. We care deeply about children. We learn and grow together, no matter what our age. We want to share God’s love with you. So welcome.
Join us and discover with us how to listen for God in worship, in community and in all of life.
