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. Here’s some of what you’ll see concurrent with the 10am Worship service (well, starting about 20 minutes into the service when kids get dismissed to Sunday school):

  • planting seeds in pots and watching them grow through the rest of the summer
  • a scavenger hunt
  • learn about the importance of bees in our world–related to the new bee hives the community garden has installed next to the church
  • music with our music director Sue Wedaa
  • telling stories in the sand box with Eliza
  • making cake pops
  • making art with some of our art teacher members

The troupe began when Dr. James Walsh, history professor at CU Denver, decided to teach history through theater. The troupe’s mission is to grow together in community with others, to engage the general public in the practice of exploring history, and to promote social justice through the art of theater. Come and experience this telling of history from the “bottom up”.
