Andrea Devenney and Kevin Daum look like they enjoyed some well-deserved shopping time in Louisville, Kentucky, after spending two days training to become Our Whole Lives (OWL) facilitators. Our thanks go to them for volunteering their time to attend the training as well as for their future efforts as OWL facilitators for our youth in 7-9th grade.
Thanks to our amazing volunteers, 3 out of the 4 Specialty Sundays have leaders to entertain our youth with a fun activity (July 7, July 21, August 4)! August 18 is still open for any willing congregants to lead an hour-long activity with the children, and all dates need one more volunteer to assist with the activity and supervision.
These Sundays can be filled with stories, baking, finger-painting, playing instruments, singing, yoga, chalking outside, playing with bubbles, a combination of different activities, and anything else the children might enjoy! Please consider signing up to volunteer if you want to help with a fun activity and get to know the smaller members of our congregation in the process. If you are interested in volunteering on one of these Specialty Sundays, please sign-up in the social hall or email Kendra at email@example.com.
Despite the cooler weather, the sun was on our side, and all the children were determined to get wet at Island Park's splash pad last Sunday! On top of playing in the water, we got to explore outside, play yard games, and have fun on the playgrounds... a very good way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The RE team is looking for willing congregants to lead an hour-long activity with our youth on select Sundays during service (July 7, July 21, August 4, and August 18). These Specialty Sundays can be filled with stories, baking, finger-painting, playing instruments, singing, yoga, chalking outside, playing with bubbles, a combination of different activities, or anything else you think the children would enjoy! If you are interested in leading a Specialty Sunday or have an activity idea for the children, please email Kendra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
