faith formation resources
After each faith formation session, we post resources for our families to use to continue the faith coversation at home. Resources include that month's children's lessons, the adult presentation and any videos that were used. We also offer suggestions for growing in faith throughout the month at home. Below are May resources.

This year's image theme is the rainbow.
Rainbows are spectacular rays of color. Sunlight looks white, but it's really made up of different colors...red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The sun makes rainbows when white sunlight passes through rain drops. The raindrops act like tiny prisms. They bend the different colors in white light, so the light spreads out into a band of colors that can be reflected back to you as a rainbow. Because a rainbow is an optical illusion, you can never reach the end of a rainbow. As you move toward it, it moves too.
Three conditions must be met in order for you to see a rainbow. First, it must be raining. Second, the sun must be shining. Third, the observer must be between the sun and the rain. The lower the sun is in the sky, the higher the arc of the rainbow will be.
Let’s consider the rainbow to be a metaphor for our relationship to God.
1.What does the sun represent? What does the rain represent? Why is it important that the observer is between the sun and the rain?
2.A rainbow is an optical illusion. Our relationship to God is no illusion but how can we think about the connection between what and how we see and our relationship to God?
