“Casual Sunday” - Following worship next Sunday, RE will be having a

movie/pizza day here at the meetinghouse with the Sunday School kids

to “kick off” their mid-winter break.  So we are encouraging them to come

dressed in their “PJs” or comfy clothes. To support the kids, the adults are

also encouraged to come to worship in their comfy clothes (sweatpants,

sweat shirt,  jeans, etc.) as well.

Sunday School starts up again in September.  Being a teacher is a great opportunity to get to know and work with the children of the meeting.  Whether you can do a couple of weeks, a month, half a year or the whole year is fine.  Nursery through 6th grade meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Anne Gilson or Margaret Webb.
