Last week, the teachers once again asked the children for their help telling the worship story. This time, the children told the story of the Prayer in the Garden.
In this story, Jesus and his disciples go to the garden in Gesthemane to pray. While they are in the garden, the disciples fall asleep several times, even after Jesus asks them to stay awake with him.
The children were faithful storytellers, listening for their cues, wanting to do their best to tell this special worship story.
Finally on Tuesday, it was time to watch the story. The children were thrilled to see themselves leading worship. When it was time to draw prayers for their Lenten journals, they exclaimed happy, “We get to draw ourselves!”
