RE News: Sun Feb 18

Lifespan Religious Education

In today’s world, relatives tend to live farther apart, lives are busier, and children’s activities are more structured. This means there are fewer opportunities for intergenerational connection. A congregation is one of the places where that enriching interaction can happen. Our Special Friends Pen Pal Program intentionally connects CUUC children and adults in a fun, simple way. Contact me to sign up to have a pen pal this spring. Six letters are exchanged anonymously through the Special Friend mailboxes at CUUC and then you get to meet at the Pancake Brunch on May 6. Join us for this meaningful program.

Please see the following four (4) announcements:

1) This Sun Feb 18
All ages are in Fellowship Hall for a special music enrichment program with Lyra Harada, our Children's Music Director.

Faith Like a River
The Wisdom RE Ministry Team invites you to an Adult RE experience facilitated by Rev. Meredith. This class explores the people, ideas, and movements that have shaped our faith heritage. What lessons do the stories of our history teach that can help us live more faithfully in the present? What lessons do they offer to be lived into the future? You may also join this program online via Zoom videoconferencing by going to https://zoom.us/j/2898507899.

Family Journey Group
Parents gather to discuss this month's theme of love (facilitated by Barbara Montrose), while children have their own group with activities and discussion based on the theme (facilitated by Perry Montrose, DLRE). Adults without children are invited to participate in the parents’ group.

Youth Group Game Night
Hang out in the Youth Room for a special night of fun. Gnomes welcome!
Games will be provided but feel free to bring your favorite. The foosball table will be active!!!

Social Time for Adults
Those who would like more time to chat and just be together are welcome to continue hanging out in Fellowship Hall after the meal. Come to simply get to know your fellow CUUCers better, without specific programming.

3) Special Friends Signup
We invite you to join us for this pal program that anonymously matches children and adults in the congregation to get to know each other.

After exchanging six letters over ten weeks, you get to meet your pen pal at the Pancake Brunch on May 6. The letter exchange begins on March 4.

Please email me at dlre@cucwp.org to sign up.
