This Month in Religious Education
February 2 MULTI-GENERATIONAL SUNDAY
This Sunday’s service starts with a staged theater production, written by Roz Reynolds, featuring BUF actors of all ages. After the play everyone will gather in birthday month groups for an activity examining our personal “wealth”, and the ways we share it. We will end with a peach “Cobbler Communion”! Preschool will be offered upstairs after the play.
February 9 RE Classes
Children will be sung out of the service and go to age appropriate classes. K-2 will be having Spirit Play. Older kids will be cooking a hearty vegetarian soup to give to the women’s shelter while brainstorming other ways in which we can be generous through words and action. We will offer preschool as usual.
February 16 Theater Sunday
After being sung out of the service we will have art and theater games for K-through 8th graders upstairs in the flex room. We’ll have fun with improvisation, movement and vocalization exercises and games. This will be a lively session – comfortable, loose clothing is recommended! Preschool will also be offered. We’ll have an art project table for those not into theater.
February 23 Guest speaker and Art!
Caitlin Koch, the Executive Director of Our TreeHouse, will come talk to us about her nonprofit and lead us in an art project. Our TreeHouse offers support and healing for children experiencing grief and we will be creating “tree art” which will be displayed in their new building. Preschool is offered as usual.
PARENT POTLUCK AND CLASS 12:00-1:15
After the service on the 23rd we will have a parent potluck featuring BBQ ribs! We’ll be having a conversation about Family Friendly programming, including a possible summer camp! Come scheme and dream with us. Childcare is provided.
