Sunday Mornings:

New Summer Schedule for Children's Religious Education

We are trying something new this summer! At 9:30 a.m. each Sunday for July and August, we will be offering a multi-age religious education class for children and youth using lesson plans from Soul Matters "Magic Summer." While children and youth are in class, we invite their parents and caregivers to participate in our Sunday Morning Forum. At 11:00 a.m., we will be offering multi-generational worship services, connecting to the "Magic Summer" themes, which will feature stories, activities and time to wonder. We invite families to experience these services together with the rest of the congregation. Participation in classes and services can be done in person or online via zoom.


> July 10, 2022 Children's Focus*: "Alejandro’s Gift" by Richard E. Albert, illustrated by Sylvia Long

A rare peek at desert habitat. Alejandro, an old man isolated in the desert, plants a garden to combat his loneliness. When small desert animals begin to visit the garden in search of water, Alejandro decides to dig a well to help the larger desert animals. The gift of water he gives to the animals is surpassed by the gift of company he receives in return.

*A story and/or object lesson for children and people of all ages included in each Sunday Service

Alejandro's Gift


> Children's Religious Education Classes – Come Join in!

Join us after Children's Focus (in a separate Zoom room from Sunday Service). We will be using the Soul Matters lessons each week for our RE class. These have been redesigned to work with our current online format.
