This week is very exciting because we are discuss the Lenten season. Children are being introduced to how Jesus sacrificed his life for us and how we are suppose to live in God's image. The children are very excited to learn more about this and what they could do to show a sacrifice or charity for this special season. We will discuss how important it is to lend a hand to others especially when it's to important people in our lives.
