VIRTUAL LENT GARDENS

Are you beginning to look for great resources for Lent that are suitable for faith formation of all ages?  If so, I would like to tell you about an exciting resource we’ve been working on for you and your church to use this Lent.

Church educators and leaders from Foothills Presbytery and  Synod of Central, Northeastern Ontario and Bermuda (Presbyterian Church of Canada) have been working in collaboration to create weekly, interactive Lent Gardens that are designed to invite us all to read and reflect on the scriptures and stories of this season as we journey together with Jesus and his followers toward Jerusalem.

With this garden project we imagined lots of reading and conversation in our homes around these life-changing stories. We also imagined a broad variety of additional, multi-sensory activities for all ages that connect and expand our understanding and experience of this season. Using Google classroom format, we have created interactive gardens that will invite people to open the door to a Lenten world of discovery and transformation.  This resource is easy for its users as well as easy for you to upload to your church website, facebook page or share through a weekly email.

If you’d like to receive more information about this resource, please email Pressley Cox, Associate for Shared Mission and Ministry, at pcox@foothillspresbytery.org
