Pack 6
This weekend a crew of volunteers from the congregation shared their helping hands and happy hearts to pack and move items out of our education wing in preparation for construction in that area. In typical Holy Family fashion, even the kids got involved and were very helpful with moving and lifting items. Thank you to everyone who came out to clear the classrooms in record time.

Magic or Miracles?

Mobile users please CLICK HERE to view the entire post with more photos.
This week, children in our Sunday school and Youth Group programs finished their fall unit about the Miracles of Jesus. Children and teachers presented a few magic tricks to the group and shared in a meaningful discussion about why the miracles of Jesus were much more than just magic.
Following the discussion, the children got into small groups and planned out ways to present the bible stories we reviewed through charades. The stories included Jesus walking on water, calming the storm, healing the blind and paralyzed, filling the nets with fish, and feeding the five thousand.

Feeding the Five Thousand

Our Miracles of Jesus unit continued with the story of the Feeding of the Five Thousand. The children brainstormed ways to help feed the “five thousand” in their community. As a final activity, the students used canned and boxed goods donations given by congregation members as well as those collected at the recent Fishers High School Choirs concert to create a sculpture of a boat, The boat stood in the Narthex as a reminder to bring more food donations before the items were delivered to the Delaware Township Trustee’s food pantry. In total, over seven hundred pounds of food were delivered to the food pantry to restock their shelves for families in need.
