Summer Reading 2020
You are cordially invited to participate in the 2020 Summer Reading Club: Resist & Create! The Children & Youth CE Committee along with Pastors Malinda and Amanda are offering a fun and formative time for children this summer by reading and processing issues that are happening in our world today. Our hope is that this program will assist each of us on our way to being formed and molded into followers of Jesus, who loved all, and sided with the most marginalized over the oppressor every time.
In this document you will find the details for each age group clearly laid out including reading lists, instructions and forms for recording your progress (PreK-5th ; Jr/Sr High) between now and Labor Day weekend. Parental signatures will be required to receive the end of summer prize — $10 Lancaster “Downtown Dollars” and a chance to pick a prize from the C&Y grab-bag.
As we all work on our own understanding of race, racism, sharing, acceptance, injustice, and hope, embracing this opportunity to read the same books will allow us to better talk to one another, deepening our understanding of what it means to be agents of peace in our world. We hope you have as much fun going through this reading list as we had putting it together. Until we can be together in person again, know that you are known and loved by God and by this community.
