January nUUs from Religious Education

It’s a NEW DECADE, everyone!

I am sitting at the front desk at church right now, listening to a full room of laughter and light as our high school youth feed the First Night revelers hot bowls of chili! Thank you so much to all of you who made pots of chili to donate, who showed up to help with serving, or who came to eat and take it all in!

Family and Parent Resources for exploring Integrity These resources help parents as they engage the question: “What does it mean to be a family of Integrity?”

  • Story To Read Together
  • Family Discovery
  • Family Movie Night Ideas
    • Mary Poppins “Families can talk about how Mary Poppins gets her messages across. What’s easier to hear, a command or a song? How does Poppins get respect from others? Why is it important to spend time together? What happens if people get too busy sometimes to “go fly a kite”? How does Mary Poppins teach and demonstrate … integrity?”
  • Support for Parents as Faith Formation Guides
