Stump the pastor update

They finally stumped the pastor

Children’s time at Christ UMC is called “Stump the Pastor”.

Our pastor, Keith Harris, invites children to bring household items to the platform and he tells them a story relating to the item.  Keith has always been successful in  entertaining the congregation with his responses.  Well recently, he admitted he was stumped.  What was the item? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A pokeman card!

community what this season is all about.

Our narrator read ” the white table cloth represents “purity of intent” ” and continued with an explanation of the significance of each item on the table.  At the conclusion of the narration, the congregation was invited to gather round the table in remembrance of all the nations fallen warriors.  Thank you Keith Harris (pastor) for organizing such a moving experience for us all.
