In a time when we are seeking to educate ourselves and looking for ways to support racial reconciliation, it can be hard to know where to look. Below are just a few resources available to respond to the call to action. We will continue to post more resources in the coming weeks.

Sunday Morning Preschool Engagement Activity
This Sunday we will be teaching on the parable of the good Samaritan. Gather some bandaids or stickers, washable markers, damp washcloth and a roll of toilet paper. As the story is shared, ask your preschooler to act as the good Samaritan. You can choose a plastic doll or adult to be the wounded traveler. Optional: You can even draw some wounds with washable markers on the person/doll. Have your preschooler wash the wounded, give medicine, and bandage up the person with bandaids and toilet paper.
