January 2014 Gatherings: Beatitudes and Sacraments

This month, the children and parents in our gatherings encountered the Beatitudes in a unique way.  The younger children created “Bee Cups,” to remind themselves and teach others about how Jesus wants us to be happy and left us these great guidelines by which to live our lives. We can all be like bees buzzing around the garden! The older groups used their bibles to look up the passages in Scripture and talk about how we can apply the beatitudes to our lives.

Our FISH families concentrated on the sacraments and encountered a “hands on” approach by actually seeing, touching, hearing, smelling and tasting each of them.  Our “Sacrament Boxes” are always a big hit!
