Sunday School is up and running at the 9:00 service. We will take children from kindergarten to 6th grade. The name of the curriculum we are using is ‘A Joyful Path’. Here is a brief intro to the curriculum:
“The lesson topics are drawn from qualities that are important to develop in our own lives as well as to nurture in our children. The list is not definitive, but it includes many aspects of personal development that are vital if we want to open our hearts to a deeper relationship with spirit within ourselves and others.” From January through June we will be exploring:
- Who or What is God?
- Who was Jesus?
- The Bible and how we use it
- Learning from our mistakes
- Connecting with kindness
- Practicing humility
For more information on A Joyful Path Curriculum visit the Progressive Christianity website.
Nursery Help Need:
Additional nursery volunteers continue to be needed for winter and spring Sundays. Anyone who has had Safe Sanctuary Training can volunteer. If you are available or have any questions, please contact Betsy Merkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VBS 2019 Paddling Together
A huge thank you to all the folks who cheerfully volunteered to make VBS a success. From the amazing artwork and themed music, to the lessons, crafts, incredible snacks and side- splitting games, YOU came out to make three nights not only fun for the children but a time of laughter and fellowship for the adults. And who would have known that such talented actors and actresses were in our midst?!
A heartfelt thank you to all these people: Ashley and Shane Pouliot, Sandra and Todd Ringlestein, Judy and Paul Lesoine, Sue and John Scudder, Jude Davis, Roger and Barbara Kohls, Nancy and Dave Hanson, Jean and Mel Heckman, Barbara Cotnoir, Gayle Bettinger, Priscilla Chase, Mary Jo Bailey and Lexie, Pam Abbott, Jay and Louise O’Donald, Marie Nomandin, Peg Young, Bev Charest, Paul and Lynn Worth, Kate Young Wilder, Pastor Bob. When the request for help went out, you all eagerly stepped forward and said What can I do to help? Even though everyone went home exhausted each evening, we all laughed, sang, learned, and laughed some more with the children. Thanks for answering the call to be the hands and feet of Christ.
Be on the look out for Mitchell Moose, Bernadette Bear, Lucy Loon, and Timothy R. Trout again next summer as they continue to learn what it takes to PADDLE TOGETHER. For now, enjoy the Video of our 2019 VBS program.
