RE News: Sun Oct 28

Last Sunday I was pleased to lead the children's worship for K-5 in Fellowship Hall. The children gathered around the chalice and one child was selected to lead the chalice lighting opening words, and another assisted me in lighting the candle. Excitement over Halloween was tangible as all the children gathered around in a circle and chose a partner to discuss what they liked the best about the holiday. After a minute or so they shared their thoughts with each other. Costumes and parties were a huge hit, but the hands-down winner was candy, candy, candy! We extinguished the chalice with all of us reading together the closing words and blowing out the flame as a group. The children immediately gathered around the piano to work with Lyra, learning the words of the song being prepared for Thanksgiving. We want to thank Mary Kingsley, mother of Arturo Cruz Avellan, who was kind enough to bring in a cake for Arturo’s birthday. He was very excited to share it with his friends in class 8-9. So we continue to move forward with many RE events scheduled in weeks to come. The teachers remain motivated as well as the students. CUUC religious education is nothing short of impressive!
