Parable of the Wedding Feast
We meet Winston the Walrus who pays a visit to his old acting partner, Reynardo T. Foxx. They watch a video that Winston is directing. It is based on Jesus’ Parable about The Wedding Feast and both the people who attended and who did not attend. We ask ourselves if we would have gone to the party and why.

Building the Church
Book of Acts
On the Day of Pentecost, we learn the story of the women and men in that upper room who received the gift of the tongues of fire on the Birthday of the church. Joining in the celebration are The Bunny sisters, Harvey Hare, Ozzie, Sylvester, Professor Oldman, Jul of K-Min, Truman the Fennec, Daffi-Dil, and of course, Maxi Mouse.
Charlie and Maxi have some questions about the Story of the Ascension. They seek the advice of Professor Oldman and meet his very unusual friend, Jul. We also learn more about the Creation from Daffi-Dil, then we visit the next-door chickens, and finally watch one of our families make strawberry jam and a rag rug.
Gifts of the Spirit
We meet Harold Hare, a kind and generous rabbit who helps us to learn about the coming of the Holy Spirit. Maxi Mouse and Charlie sort through some crafts, we pay a visit to the Montgomery family for a drive-by graduation and the neighbor chicks get familiar with their new home.
I Am The Way
A Fennec named Truman helps us understand the truth in a story Jesus told his disciples about our actions defining who we are. Daffy Dill has an exciting announcement about the Easter Lilies and two of our families share fossil hunting and chicken farming adventures.
Reflecting the Light
In this episode, the children will learn more about why Jesus used symbols, such as the Shepherd and the Gate when he talked about who he was. Workshop marionettes of the Sun and the Moon tell us about reflecting Jesus’ Light, and the growing baby chicks next door get a brand new home.
Thomas the Twin
In the puppet workshop, the children will learn how handkerchief puppets are made as the Bandana Twins help us tell the story of the Disciple Thomas. We will also be checking on the growth of our Easter lily buds and visit the three week old baby chicks next door.
Huldah the Prophet
This week the children learn about the love of books and a very important Prophet named Huldah who could understand which books belonged in the Bible. We’ll also checking on the growth progress of our baby chicks and discover some Easter lily buds outside.
In this week’s Hope at Home visit, the children will meet Ozzie, Dan’s 43 year-old cockatoo companion and learn about loving people for who they are. We’ll also meet Daffy Dill, a talking flower, and explore the meaning of waving leaves on Palm Sunday. Finally, we’ll discover what Ozzie’s story can teach us about Jesus’ challenges during Holy Week.
Psalm 23 Shepherd & the Lamb
In the first remote visit to the Puppet Workshop of Dan Peeler, our Minister for Children and Graphics coordinator, Charlie Rose, our Kids of Hope meet Maxie Mouse who has some surprises for them in al old storage box. Everyone learns about the shepherd in Psalm 23 and how remembering the story can give the whole family joy while washing their hands. Charlie and Maxie share some news about fun downloadable lessons and crafts.
