God loves all children. We are all His sons and daughters. We need to be thoughtful and kind. Some of our friends come to church by themselves. Some can’t get baptized until they grow up.

You can reach out to someone who feels alone or left behind.

Knowing someone’s name can make a difference.

Invite someone to sit by you.

Help those who feel scared or shy. Think about them. Welcome them.

Let’s open our arms and our hearts a little wider.
