I am so excited to be getting started on this blog. I hope that it will be a good way for Southminster United Church (SUCh) to reach out to members, neighbours, and friends. I hope that you will check back weekly throughout the school year to hear what I have to say to the people (young and formerly young) of our church.
Frequently Asked Questions
I am Hilary. Since I began attending SUCh in 2006, I have sat on several committees, participated in the drama program, sung with the choir, and taught Sunday School. When the opportunity to lead Children’s Time became available, I literally threw my hand in the air and shouted “Pick Me!” I have been joyfully leading this important part of our weekly ministry since September 2011.
Children’s Time could also be known as Sermon Lite. After the first hymn and before the kids leave for their Sunday School gatherings, I meet them at the front of the sanctuary for a few minutes. It gives them a chance to hear and learn the week’s scripture in a different way than their Sunday School teachers will offer; it gives the adults a warm-up to what the morning’s sermon will be; it gives me a chance to study scriptures and connect with the kids. Children’s Time is a fun win-win-win to which I look forward every week!
