All Aboard!

This Sunday, January 26th, the children will begin in the Parish House to join the Bell Choir for the morning! Last year’s Winter Workshop with the Bell Choir was such a phenomenal hit, we’re hopping on that train again this year!  Whoot-whoot!

Youth in grades 8-12 are welcome to attend and ring with the Bell Choir OR to come and make a little breakfast together and head upstairs. If our new conference/ping-pong/billiards table isn’t fully assembled, you can help get that together and have a couple of rounds of play!

There are more Winter Workshops coming in February! Sarah and Anna Bishop will lead the first on February 2nd. On February 9th, Hannah Burreau will help us prepare for Valentines for our families, friends and folks who receive Meals on Wheels – the third anniversary of this project! Sunday the 16th is the start of school vacation, but we’ll be in the kitchen preparing some bread to share with our congregation during Hospitality. On February 23rd, the children will begin and remain in the Sanctuary to join us and assist in serving communion to our community.

This spring, there are some changes coming up… We are going to combine some classes. The nursery will remain the same. In the “Blue Room”, we’ll gather Kindergarten through 2nd graders for the combined Spirit Play and Players curriculum (stories and plays). In “Classroom 9 3/4” (the middle room), 3rd – 5th graders will meet to continue Harry Potter and the Bible discussions and activities. The Map Room and Window Room will be reserved for any youth, 8th through 12th, who would like to come together on Sunday mornings.

More details and a full calendar will be included in my weekly e-blast on Friday. If you haven’t been receiving them, please let me know and I’ll make sure you’re on the list. You may also need to check your “spam” folder and mark my e-blast as friendly.

Merrily Chugging Along!
