This Sunday will feature the return of our Take Apart Party, where youth and children will take apart various machines and items to see their inner workings. In keeping with our “constructing” theme, parts from the Take Apart Party will be used later this summer to build sculptures!
Join us this Sunday as our Constructing Community activities continue. Children and youth will be working in our back woods collecting natural materials to build an outdoor shelter! Please dress for dirt and bring garden gloves if you have them. Bug spray would also be a great idea. Contact Ellie Lamb for more information. Indoor activities will be available, working on our milk jug igloo and egg carton chalice!
Join us this Sunday as our Constructing Community activities continue. Children and youth will begin working on our kid-sized igloo made out of milk jugs. We currently have only about half of the milk jugs we need so ask around, especially if you have connections to a daycare or senior facility!
Join us this Sunday as our Constructing Community activities continue. Children and youth can work on our huge chalice or make a marble run out of paper tubes! If you’ve been saving paper tubes, egg cartons or (especially) gallon milk jugs, now is the time to bring them in to church.
Have you ever watched a child as they scanned the night sky in awe? Have you been outdoors far from city lights and stood in wonder at the pinpoints of light in the vast dome of sky? Come celebrate Earth Day with us! This is a worship for all ages that you won’t want to miss. (There is a rumor that glitter is involved!) Childcare is available for ages 3 and under.
Join us this Sunday for our annual Easter egg hunt at Heritage! Children will be in worship for the first part of the service, then will be released to find a “rainbow” of eggs — seven in all — to exchange for an Easter treat bag. Everyone is encouraged to cooperate to be sure everyone finds their rainbow of eggs! (Custom bags can be created for children with food sensitivities.) Contact Rev. Leslie for more details.
Kindergarten/1st grade: Acceptance
In today’s class participants will hear the story “Odd Velvet” about a young girl starting in a new school who gradually became accepted by her classmates. They’ll discuss the book and share examples of when they were the new child or in a new situation. Finally they’ll sing a new song: “I’m Unique and Unrepeatable.”
2nd/3rd grade: Love is Eternal
Children will hear a folk tale from Madagascar titled “How Death is Like a Banana Tree.” They’ll remember love ones or pets that have died and create memory flowers.
4th/5th grade: The More We Get Together
Youth will talk about all the different tasks required to run and sustain our congregation. They’ll discuss who is responsible for different tasks and make bookmarks as gifts.
Junior Youth: Youth will conclude their discussions on Hinduism and begin exploring Earth Centered Religions.
This Sunday all ages are invited to participate in our annual Water Communion Ceremony — to wash away pain and sorrow, to cleanse our spirits, and to shift our perspective. Today, all hands and hearts will be touched by holy water. Come experience this simple but powerful ritual of healing and grace. Childcare is available for children ages 3 and under.
