April showers bring May flowers! This May we continue to embrace the spring weather and our themes of Community, Bees and Play!

May is also a time to celebrate mothers everywhere. Moms of all kinds, grandmothers, step-mothers, dog moms, mother figures, are all important to recognize. Why? Because they care. And because they work hard to show that they care. Thank you to all the moms of any and all beings. Thank you for making room for others in your life and for putting your own needs aside at times. We appreciate you.

We hope you come play with us this Spring! We look forward to seeing you.

May Sunday RE begins at 10am.
Look for whether we’re starting in the sanctuary to hear a Time for All Ages, or in the Parish House up the hill! Nursery care is available at 9:30am for babies & toddlers aged 0-5. Pick-up for all children is at 11:30am (on the playground if weather is nice)!

May 5 | Springfest!
It’s going to be a festive Sunday! Kids are invited to bring a flower to share during today’s Flower Communion and stay for an intergenerational service in the Parish House. There will be music from our bell choir, a Time for All Ages given by our 5th grade Roots & Shoots group, and even dancing!

Afterward, we hope you stay around as festivities continue outside (if weather is bad, we will hold events inside)! Bring a picnic lunch & celebrate spring as we make flower crowns, and enjoy facepainting, music, a May Pole and more! We’ll also crown our Springfest Queen/s!

May 12 | Mother’s Day Project with Nancy Henderson
Kids of all ages are invited to the Parish House, where we’ll work on a special surprise for the moms in our lives!

May 19 | UU Sunday with Chalices & Beeswax candles
Kids will meet in the sanctuary for a Time for All Ages before heading up to the Parish House for a fun morning of making chalices and candles! We’ll create special chalices to take home, while we talk about the role & symbolism of the chalice within the UU faith and explore the UU Principles.

May 26 | Memorial Day weekend—No Nursery or RE
Children are always welcome in service! There are books & activity packets for kids in the Stearns room. Have a relaxing weekend & remember those who have died while serving our country.
