THIS SUNDAY IN CHURCH:
First, and this is important, parents of middle schoolers:
5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders are cordially invited to attend music Sunday (they will not have class) and sit together with their classes and teachers. I will mark off reserved pews for them in the front. Of course, they are welcome to sit with their families if they would rather do that.
[Do you know that your children are always welcome in worship? They are. If you are a family that likes to worship together in the sanctuary, know that we are tickled to have you ALL with us. There is no religious law that says children *must be educated* during the Sunday morning service and adults *must worship*. We’re all a family under one sky, and our house of worship is open to ALL. That means people under 18, too.]
Our first-fourth graders will come to the first part of worship before being dismissed to their classrooms. Babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners will begin in their classrooms.
Babies will be lovingly cuddled and played with in the nursery.
2s/3s will be exploring the winter holidays some more.
So will the preschooler/kindergarteners and 1st/2nd graders.
3rd/4th graders will be learning about prayer as a spiritual practice.
Next Sunday, December 23rd is an all ages worship in the sanctuary. All are invited, and child care will be available for children under 4. We will be celebrating the miracle of birth.
FINALLY, Coming of Age will meet from 12-1:30 pm in the basement with their illustrious mentors. We will be discussing the incarnational theology of Unitarianism in honor of the upcoming Christmas holiday. Then, we will head to the Teibels to party it up and celebrate the miracle of being together.
Lots of love to you and your’s,
