Caterpillars (Nursery-Preschool)

(Warm and loving care for our very little ones and Celebrating Me and My World for our preschoolers. This curriculum teaches our children to celebrate their own personal gifts and talents. From a place of feeling special and worthy, the curriculum asks our children to expand their new sense of appreciation to people and things around them.)

  • Last Sunday: My World Has Light!
  • This Sunday: My World Has Sand and Soil! Spring is almost here, we can almost taste it! We will explore the fertile ground this Sunday that holds the blossoms of Spring throughout the Winter. We will try not to eat too much of the dirt.
  • Next Sunday: My World Has Trees!

This Month

Identity Jam! 

This month we will explore the theme identity. We begin with a family chapel where we will celebrate difference and identity together as families. Following the chapel we will have two workshop rotations at the end of the month, artjam and storyjam. In each there will be fun and engaging activities that help us find pride in our own identities and celebrate difference. (As well as a little yoga in our art class!)

Journey Guides this Sunday: Guests Jennifer McCay and Rebecca Bernie
Guides: Dave Blomberg and Rev. Jamil

RUUTS: Ground, Connect, Grow

Join youth and their adult sponsors from all over the PNWD for a weekend of fellowship, learning, and spiritual rejuvenation. Dig deep to discover how our roots–heritage, culture, race–influence ourselves, our relationships, and our communities. How do we talk about and learn from the pain and the privilege we inherit? Together, let’s ground, connect, and grow in our diversity.
