Programming for Parents and Children
January is a month to try new things and we're excited to continue with our Family Chapel. What is a family chapel you ask? It is a chance to meet with other families, adults and children, to briefly share time and the rituals of our faith together. This space is for us all; those noisy and those quiet, those who like to sit and those who prefer to dance, those under 2 feet and those over 6. We will gather to:
- Light a chalice together
- Sing along to one of our favorite hymns
- Share Joys & Concerns
- Create an interactive art piece with household items
- Participate in short meditation
Come join us in community and on zoom Sunday at 9:30 am!
A School of Wizardry Summer Camp planning team!!
Do you or your children / youth love magic? Does the idea of attending a school of wizardry for a week sound like a dream come true? Come help us develop The School of Wizardry summer camp for kids from 1st - 8th grade for mid-June of 2021. We are looking for a group of five adults who have both big imagination and can also track the details of planning a summer camp. If that's you please email me at email@example.com. Our first meeting will be held Sunday, Feb. 21st at 5:00 pm.
NEW!! The Story For All Ages in our Sunday Worship Service at 10:15 am has been moved up in the worship and will now take place directly after the chalice lighting. If your children are not ready to sit through the whole service, we hope you'll join us for the first 10 minutes. The message of the story illustrates the theme of the worship honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Here are some questions to prompt thought afterwards:
- Who was one of the people that inspired Martin Luther King Jr.?
- What was one of your favorite parts of the story of his life
- Why do you think it's important to know about Dr. King?
You can join worship at 10:15 straight from our MDUUC webpage
NEW!! A Mixed Up Event for parents of middle schoolers!
This year our middle schoolers have been engaged in deepening their anti-racism competency with a program called "Mixed-ish" that's given us a chance to grow our awareness of modern day racism and practice talking about it. It's been so meaningful for our group that we'd like to invite our parents to come Mix It Up with us and see what all the excitement is about!
Come join youth advisors Marena McGregor & Keven Hsieh for a mixed up parent hour on Sunday, Jan. 31st from 5-6 pm where they will lead you through a "Mixed-ish" experience including assigning the all important jobs. This will be a super fun hour AND give you tools for expanding these conversations at home.
