Scripture Lesson


The prodigal son, portrayed by Jasper Fontana, throws his wealth away after leaving his father’s estate.

Prodigal Son Live

Jesus’ parable about the Prodigal Son took on a new dimension Sunday with each of the characters being portrayed by members of the congregation. It was both fun to watch and provided a deeper understanding of the scripture lesson through the emotions of our presenters.

Linda Webster was the narrator, Bob Webster was the father, Jasper Fontana was the younger son, Matt Braun the older son, and the Rev. Ruth Morrison the servant. When the younger son had left home and squandered his wealth and went to work feeding pigs in a field, Serafina Fontana portrayed one of the piglets.


From Luke 15:11-32:

“My son,” the father said to his older son, “you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
