Shema was a Metro DC Synod Youth event for 3rd-6th graders hosted by King of Kings Lutheran Church in Fairfax, VA. on Sunday April 30th.
The theme this year was We Need You to Be You and they used the wonderful movie, Wreck-It Ralph, to explore several faith lessons shown by the fictional lives of Ralph, Felix, Vanellope and others in the video arcade.
So on Sunday afternoon, after a busy morning of church, bringing friends, and service projects, twelve highly enthusiastic youth and four intrepid leaders went on an adventure to King of Kings Lutheran Church for the Synod event Shema!
Our youth, along with youth from many other churches across the synod spent the afternoon playing games like Pac-Man tag, creating their own edible race car snacks out of graham crackers, frosting and lots of different kinds of candy. They celebrated their own uniqueness in how they are created in God’s image!
