Sam Jones and Religious Education
A Stone Soup Service. We all have something to share, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. When we each come together in community to share our gifts, we find that something new and oftentimes wonderful is created as a result. Join us as we illustrate this in story and participation, sharing in a community soup, the result of what happens when we each bring something to the community.
Everyone is invited to bring a little of their favorite soup vegetable already cut up for today’s service.
We will also have a little pre-Service-Auction fun. Bring canned goods to church today and receive a coupon for $5 off on any purchase at the Service Auction to be held November 4. After the service, all the children are invited to go on a scavenger hunt to find the hidden canned goods. The kids will earn Service Auction coupons for cans they find. Last year, one very intrepid can hunter found a soup can that had been hiding on the church grounds for years. Besides earning coupons to use at the Service Auction, the canned goods will be donated to the McHenry Food Pantry. So this is a win-win for everybody.
