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 Sand and Soil!
  • This Sunday: My World Has Trees! What a wonderful gift we have in the PNW, the gift of beautiful trees. We often forget to notice the beauty around us. This Sunday we teach our children to appreciate the beauty around them at an early age. Their awareness gained at this age can lead them to a life of appreciation of the earth.
  • Next Sunday: My World Has Flowers!

RUUTS: Ground, Connect, Grow

Join youth and their adult sponsors from all over the PNWD for a weekend of fellowship, learning, and spiritual rejuvenation.

Dr. William Barber.  Rev.  Barber is, among other things, the main organizer of North Carolina’s “Moral Mondays.”  He tells an interesting and instructive story.  You are invited to read the book and to join in a study group at church, facilitated by…

Strangers

We will meet to discuss “Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right” by Arlie Russell Hochschild. Choose hope, not anger.  Seek out people you don’t usually talk to, and listen to their stories. Recognize each other’s humanity. Read this book. In Rev. Lois’ sermon of Nov. 27, she advised us to try to understand the viewpoints of those we feel at odds with, to stop trying to convince others to change their mind with facts…
