Faith Development Updates (8.23.21)

 Please note that the following schedule is subject to change based on COVID stages in our community and our staged gathering plan.

Outdoor faith development classes begin on October 3 following our outdoor worship service, and I need your help. PreK (ages 3&up) will gather on the playground with Harmoni, masked and with at least one parent volunteer. For the first few weeks we will not have Children’s Chapel during our outdoor worship. Access to classrooms inside will not be available. There will not be nursery care available. You, as a family, can decide your own comfort level in participating outdoors and masked. All volunteers and staff are required to be vaccinated to work with children at this time.

Class for older children and youth starts at approximately 10:30 AM. Consider volunteering to lead elementary, middle or high school classes. And you won’t want to miss the all ages faith development class on October 3rd. It is the first in a series of spiritual practice sessions and the focus is on letting go!

I didn’t receive any feedback via a poll earlier in August and no one joined the virtual meeting on 8/15 to talk about returning to RE, so I’m proceeding with my current plans. And I remain flexible to change as things unfold. Understanding that families are in various places regarding coming back to class, we will continue to offer access to asynchronous learning with monthly posts on the website. Watch for the first post on September 1, with activities, stories, and music related to our theme of Finding Meaning. If parents are wanting more, I will consider adding a weekly virtual Family Chapel, but I need to hear from you!

Current Programming

Our online Nursery/PreK children’s chapel continues this Sunday, 8/29, at 9:15 am with Ms. Harmoni. Children up through age 7 are invited to join her for a 30-minute chapel before our regular worship begins. Children’s Chapel

All other ages are encouraged to participate in worship services in the chat. 

Adult Faith Development

Join our fellowship hour discussions to deepen your connection to others and reflect on the morning’s worship focus.

Adult Faith Development programming restarts on October 3. Chalice Circle sign-ups are now open. You can read more about them here. If you are interested in facilitating a chalice circle, please contact me directly.

You can also learn what is in store for Sunday mornings on the Adults page.

See you on Sunday,
