Youth Service This Sunday! One Service at 10:00 a.m.

Youth Service and Bridging Ceremony

Join us at 10:00 a.m. this Sunday as our High School Youth Group leads our morning worship.  Something unexpected will happen, of that you can be certain!  Our adult and youth choirs will provide the music, with a special song by Bruce Baker in honor of our bridging seniors. After the service celebrate the end of our spring term, and our bridging seniors, with a slice of cake.

See below for other activities this Sunday for children and youth. 

Annual Congregational Meeting 11:15 a.m.

Our annual congregational meeting will take place after the service.  Childcare will be provided up to age 12, and snacks for adults and kids will be offered. Please come for this important exercise in congregational democracy.  We will elect new board members, vote on the budget, and hear a report from Board President Craig Cyr.  The meeting usually takes about an hour.

Preschool - First Grade Class

This Sunday our little children will stay in the service with us.  The Youth Group has planned a special kid friendly activity during the service.  Children 4 and under are welcome in the Toddler Care Room, down the hall in the office wing. 

Quiet Heart Class-Final Class of Spring Term

Parents, please be sure to bring your students in grades 2-6 for their final Sunday of the Quiet Heart class.  And please be prepared to depart from the service a little bit early this week, as our Quiet Heart students have a presentation of their skills to share with you. Before the Valediction, please join the class outside for a brief celebration and demonstration. We will be done before the Annual Meeting begins. 

8th Grade Students Bridging into Youth Group 

This Sunday, after our high school seniors have their bridging ceremony, the 8th grade students will bridge into the Youth Group.  Students completing 8th grade this spring are invited to participate in this simple ritual during the service.  After this Sunday, 8th graders are welcome to join the Youth Group for any of their activities.  Please watch for invitations to specific welcoming activities for new high school students this spring and summer.

Nominate a Teacher

Got someone you think would be great with our youth and children? We are looking for more people to serve on our teaching team for next year, and as youth advisors.  If you have someone you think would be great with young people, please mention their name to Rev. Cecilia Kingman or to Cass Bunting, Faith Development Assistant. Yes, you can nominate yourself!  Ask your children and youth who they would like to have working with them, please.
