For Children and Youth: Sunday, June 12 2011

This Sunday is our final week of classes before we break for the summer.  Please join us for the closing celebrations in each class!

Spirit Play
PreKindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade Classes
For our closing lesson, we will have a flower ceremony and a special feast.  Please bring a flower to share with someone else in class.  It can be a flower from your yard or a flower from a store.

Stepping Stone Year
3rd-4th Grade
Please join us for a special Stepping Stone ceremony and celebration.  We'll remember the many things we've talked about this year, and ways we have grown through the year. 

5th-6th Grade
In this final week of class we will have our traditional "Feast in Ancient Palestine."  Parents are invited to join their children for this class.  We'll remember all the things we've learned through the year.

Sacred Threads
7th-8th Grade
Please join us for a Japanese tea ceremony.  We'll honor our time together and learn something new as well!

YRU2 (High School Youth Group)
9th-12th Grade
The youth group opted to bring their year to a close at the annual spring retreat, and thus are not meeting formally this week.  Youth are enthusiastically invited to worship this week.

The Party Was Wonderful!

Thank you to all who hosted and attended my "farewell party" after church last Sunday.  It was wonderful!  I will be around through July 31st, so not to worry if anyone missed the goodbyes.  There is still time. 

Warmly in Faith,
