Last Sunday, our Faith Formation team had a blast painting pumpkins with some of the Sojourners kids and families after the service! We brought everything outside and enjoyed the beautiful fall weather (and did plenty of running around, blowing bubbles, and chatting about Halloween costumes).
Afterwards, we delivered the painted pumpkins to our friends at The Alyssa House, which provides a safe place for the families of immunocompromised children to stay while their kids are receiving medical treatment in Charlottesville, and then enjoyed a potluck lunch together.
A huge thank you to the kids and families at Sojourners who painted pumpkins with us, and to our fantastic nursery caregiver Toni for helping support this event! Keep your eyes peeled for more upcoming Faith Formation events—we’re especially excited for our intergenerational Advent gathering after church on December 3, with ornament-making, hot beverages, card-writing, and community. All are welcome!
