Retirement of Kate Epperly
Our amazing Coordinator of Justice & Advocacy for Family & Children's Ministries has decided to retire. We want to celebrate the good work Kate brought to Ministries Across Generations. She met with many of our relational ministries working on issues around gun violence, domestic violence, refugees and immigration, xenophobia, racism, and more. In addition, she continued her responsibilities as a daily after school caregiver for her two grandsons. Thank you, Kate! You are already missed!
We have already seen many of you proactively putting together resources for Lent. Here
are some helpful tools if you need them. E-mail us with your insight, creativity and
resources to share! We will update the Ministries Across Generations Facebook page.
Some "New" Resources:

through Lent and concludes with the good news of Easter Sunday.
Wonder of Easter Uses a child’s “wonder” questions to think about what it must have
felt to be a part of the biblical story, and uses a prayer to make a connection to how we honor Jesus today. It includes Bible verses on every page and is in both English and Spanish text.
