PreTeens Make Lenten Pretzels - 03/13/15

On Friday, following the Akathist to the Passion of Christ, our PreTeen Club families met for fun and fellowship. As a project, and a way to teach about Great Lent, we made pretzels - which originated as a type of Lenten snack. Derived from the German word "brezel" meaning "little arms," pretzels do look like two arms crossed over the chest in humility and prayer. Besides the fun of making pretzels, the kids also played together in the gym and had a wonderful time.
