Sunday, May 6  “Nurturing Curiosity”  Religious Education Sunday

RE Sunday is the time when our children share what they have experienced throughout the year with the congregation.

During the 9:30 service, there will be a bridging ceremony to mark major milestones for many of our children and youth.   Our graduation high school seniors, Maia O’Meara and Rowen Matney, will be sharing reflections of their future and the role our church has played in their lives.  The middle school youth will be bridging next year’s six-graders~Helena Esparza, Margee Haines, Kai Klempp, Kate Kuemerle, Marlo Schatz and Vonn Wheatley~~into their community.

The 11:15 service will include presentations from each of the classes as well as a ceremony of appreciation for our teachers. Each class has prepared a lovely offering which will give a glimpse into their Sunday morning activities.  Special music will be provided by Willow Campbell, Jonathan Kiernan, Shirley Kiernan and Bob Erdman.  Join us for what will surely be a lively, fun-filled worship experience.


The Social Justice Committee holds its monthly meeting Sunday, May 6, right after second service in Eldredge Annex.  All are welcome.

Thanks to everyone who helped with our plantings on Earth Day, as part of our Green Sanctuary Program.  In spite of the low temperatures, quite a few brave adults and young folks came out and planted sunflowers, snap peas and pansies in the graveled area behind the rear entrance to Fessenden.  It really does brighten up the area, and when our sunflowers and snap peas appear, it will be even better.  Thanks again for all your help!
