Upcoming Events in Detail

Children & Youth Stuff

For the summer, we change things up a bit on Sunday mornings. We’re tapping into ideas from the congregation for summer Sunday school until we go “back to ‘regular’ Sunday school” with a September 10 celebration. Here’s some of what the kids (elementary through high school age) can participate in, beginning partway through the 10am Worship service:

  • paint & decorate talking sticks with Char (8/20 & 8/27)
  • create a story together with Lisa (9/3)

  • create slime and talk about how different ingredients come together to make something new (8/13)
  • creating a poem together while creating art to take home (8/6)
  • music fun with our Music Director Sue Wedaa (7/30)
  • hearing a story of traveling & making yummy cake pops (7/23)
  • hearing the story of the sower & the seeds, and spending time in the community garden (7/16)
  • planting seeds in pots and watching them grow through the rest of the summer (7/2)
  • sharing our stories with help from a sand box with Eliza (6/18 & 7/9)
  • learning about the importance of bees in our world–and about the bee hives right next to the church in the community garden! (6/11)
