We want to give a shoutout of thanks to Margaret, Josh, Meg, Aubree, and Skylar—the Youth Ministry Group at FaithMaps, part of the St. Paul’s Church Community. They have been meeting virtually to make newsletters with activity ideas for their congregation and let us know that they gleaned some ideas from this page. In return, they sent us a link to Virtual Theatre Experiences from Home, for which we are very grateful!
