Home T.O.W.N. Resources

For Wednesday, April 8

Before we enter into Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday, let's have a HomeT.O.W.N. Pajama Night!  On Wednesday evening grab your pajamas and your favorite stuffed animal and kick back for another edition of HomeT.O.W.N.

 

Here are all the details:

    1. Step one - and this is the crucial step! Put on your pajamas!.
    2. Take a picture and send it to Lea (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), and we'll share it with the YPC family!
    3. Watch a welcome video from our HomeTOWN Dinner Dean.
    4. Use the attached prayer from Illustrated Ministry as a table prayer (and placemat).
    5. Dine! (Pancakes? Cereal? Eggs? As long as you're in pjs, why not breakfast for dinner?)
    6. Listen to a Bible lesson and prayer from Ms. Burrows.
    7. Sing along to "You Will Be Found" with the cast of Evan Hansen (song begins at 2:14) and "You Never Let Go" with Mr. Schweitz and HSYF.
    8. Color zentangle spring leaves. Below is a collection drawn with love by Dinner Dean Wolfe. Print and color one or more! Try it with colors that are adjacent on the color wheel (like the samples attached here.)**
      1. Leaf 1
      2. Leaf 2
      3. Leaf 3
      4. Leaf 4
    9. Watch and sing our closing song, "We are the Church."

 

**These leaves would make a great addition to an Easter table. Make several and they can be gathered into an Easter tree by attaching to a toilet paper tube trunk.

 

After Easter, we would love for you to mail the leaves to YPC (Yorkfield Presbyterian Church, Attn: Lea(ves), 1099 S York St., Elmhurst, IL 60126). We hope to gather our leaves into a collaborative art piece.
