tim_web Dear Friends,

It was a dramatic scene. One year ago, two weeks after becoming pope, Pope Francis traveled to the Casal del Marmo prison on Rome’s outskirts and washed the feet of twelve people, including two women and two Muslims.

It was the first time women had taken part in the traditional Holy Thursday service. It was also the first time that a pope had conducted the service outside of either St. Peter’s or the Basilica of St. John in Lateran.

004-jesus-washes-feet

He said that he wanted to be closer to those who were suffering. His message was a simple one: Everyone, even the pope, had to be in the service of others.

Two years ago, United Methodist Bishop Bob Hayes, who serves Oklahoma, took a basin and a towel and washed the feet of those who were to be ordained clergy in that Annual Conference.

Why would they do such a thing?

Because Jesus did — and it happened at a table.

8.5 – 8.7 Touch The Water, Taste The Bread: Sacrament School

9:00 am – Noon | Ages 3 – 6 | $15 | Chapel

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Baptism and Communion are the two sacraments celebrated in the United Methodist Church. Baptism is one way we publicly acknowledge God as our creator and recognize God’s love for us. Communion is one way we remember Jesus’ great love for us all.

“Touch the Water, Taste the Bread” will provide opportunities for children to explore and experience these sacraments in ways that are meaningful to them. We will help young children understand this Bible story in terms of the meal, the love of friends and the memories that were made.

For questions about any of the Children’s Ministry programs, please contact Nikki McInnis (nmcinnis@myfumc.org) at 817/339-5086.
