As we close out our January theme of “Integrity,” children will explore finding the courage to do what is right, even if it means feeling uncomfortable or being left out. Also note that Rev. Bill will talk to the children about his upcoming sabbatical during the worship service before the children leave for their classes.
As we continue our theme of Integrity in January, children and youth will explore the ways in which we feel most ourselves by being a part of the group and working for the greater good. The theme will also include information about the justice work done by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As we begin working with January’s monthly theme of Integrity, children will explore ways to look for answers that are already inside of them. They’ll learn that some people use prayer or meditation to better hear that “still, small voice within.” Note that we are actively recruiting RE guides to lead Sunday morning sessions. Talk with or email Rev. Leslie for more information.
All ages will enjoy this holiday play featuring our Heritage church children, youth, and adults. If your child would like to be part of the fun by playing an angel or shepherd, please be at church by 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. Childcare is available in the nursery for children age three and younger.
In November our children and youth are reflecting on what it means to be a people of attention. This Sunday’s focus is on the skill of spreading kindness. It takes a big heart to be able to pay attention to other people’s needs. Metta or compassion meditation is one way that Buddhists spread kindness. If the weather is nice, we might go outside for a listening walk so please be sure your child has appropriate clothing.
“… we pray because we are here – not to change the world, but to change ourselves. Because it is when we change ourselves…that the world is changed.” – from the book “Grandad’s Prayers of the Earth.” Children will be introduced to the Prayer of St. Francis and how prayer, as a spiritual practice, is as a way to help us pay attention and focus on living a life full of inner beauty and wholeness.
This Sunday’s Halloween-themed worship service is for all ages! Wear your Halloween costume and prepare to participate in our exploration of “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything” by Linda D. Williams. Child care is available in the nursery for children 3 years old and younger.
