Religious Education & Youth Special Events

Sun Oct 04 @ 9:30AM - 10:00AM
Children's Choir Practice
Children ages 5-18 are welcome to join our Children's Choir.

The heart of a children's choir is in the community building and skill development that occurs. Choral singing builds self-confidence, memory skills, social development, and emotional expression. Music is fun, first! It is about enjoying the experience of singing.

Children's choir meets approximately twice a month in the Sanctuary and is directed by Kallin Johnson.

Religious Ed Classes & Sr Workshop
Children & Youth report directly to their classrooms. They will return to the sanctuary and join us for communion.

Beginner Group (K – 4th gr.) -> In session #2 of Picture Book Bible Tales, the children will hear a story entitled “Adam & Eve’s First Sunset: God’s New Day by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso. This story explores fear, faith, hope and gratitude. We will explore how some things in life are beyond our control. The children will make blessing or prayer books to take home.
Teacher: Susan Berkowitz

Jr. Youth Group (5th – 7th gr.) -> This fourth session of Bibleodeon presents the biblical story of Cain and Abel and raises basic religious questions about the origin and nature of evil. This class may have an air of mystery about it.
Teacher: Valorie Parent
Aide: Joan Ogden

Sr. Youth Group (8th – 11th gr.) -> WKSP #3 – Peace and Put-downs. The process of building bonds within the group continues by: creating an accepting community in which the gifts of the participants are recognized; creating a community that challenges the social hierarchies and divisions that exist outside the group; and strengthing the bonds of understanding & trust with group leaders. The process of journaling continues.
Leaders: Steve Tarver & Jessica Fish

Nursery: Cassie
