Peace Camp 2017

Wow! Our 4th annual Peace Camp was so much fun this year. We welcomed 28 campers between the ages of 4 and 10 to our fellowship where we danced, sang, twisted into yoga poses, tie dyed, listened to our heartbeats, made drums and shakers, practiced “turtle” meditation, played on the playground, learned about kid peacemakers, … Continued

Through a series of exchanged, “get to know you letters,” the pair asks questions of one another and … Continued

An Autumn Update from Children’s RE

Now that our RE programs are underway for the year, I thought I’d share some highlights from each age group: The younger elementary gang has been focusing on the concept of the web of life while learning about partnerships in nature. They made puppets of unlikely pairs that help one another in important ways. For … Continued

The Web of Life

“It’s like a spider web!” They announced with pride. And they were right. The overlapping, zig-zag pattern of cris-crossing yarn threads we had created on the table we sat around looked just like a spider web. (Minus one of those fear-inducing arachnids.) This was a typical Sunday lesson. One in which we focused on our … Continued
