Presvytera Alexandra Houck created The Children's Word bulletin so children will know they are not only welcome in church, but even more, an essential part of the Church family. She hopes the weekly bulletin will be just one more way we can make kids feel at home in church. Presvytera Alexandra is a graduate of Duke University and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. Her husband, Fr. Jason Houck, is a priest at St. Mary's Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis, MN. Presvytera Alexandra and Fr. Jason have five small children: Lydia, Paul, Silas, Philip, and Sarah. Presvytera Alexandra grew up attending Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Asheville, North Carolina with her nine siblings.
Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!
This week, Pres. Alexandra tells a story about a brother who was jealous. You’ve probably heard the story of the prodigal son, but people sometimes forget about the prodigal son’s brother. He was very jealous! Find out why he felt that way – because sometimes, we feel jealous too! You can also do a coloring page, an icon activity, and a word scramble. And you can read a story about “The Right Kind of Princess.”
