This Little Light of Mine

It was a treat to have N and Y’s kids in Sunday School yesterday. We had a lot of fun talking about how those around us shine in special ways, and how we can shine in return. And then take all that shine out into the world!

Ms. Anne taught our Godly Play class as Ms. Michelle was in Ohio; Aaron said it was a great class and that Ms. Anne treated them all to mini-pumpkins. Thanks, Anne, for filling in!

Ms. Tracy had her last day in the Little Ones class until December, when she’ll be all healed up from her hip surgery. She was teary at the end of the day, knowing it would be a month before she’d be back. Please keep her and her family in your prayers, and keep an eye out for a Meal Train to hit your inbox as she’ll need some help over the next few months.

One of our youth, Melissa, turned THIRTEEN yesterday, believe it or not. Sooner or later we’re going to have a whole slew of pre-teens and teenagers, which isn’t something I like to spend too much time thinking about!  

The upcoming weeks hold a lot of activities for UCCA youth and adults alike, beginning with this Wednesday’s Living the Questions at 9:30am, then Thursday’s charrette planning session at 6:30pm at the Elks Lodge right across from the church. Childcare will be provided!

Other dates include:

Oct. 29th – all-youth Halloween party, as well as the 500th anniversary celebration of the Reformation. Come in costume!

November 10th, 11th, or 12th we will have a Veteran’s Day project. This is still in the works so watch your email for more information.

November 18th – Parents’ Night Out from 5pm to 8pm, Caton Hall, dinner provided. RSVP to Jamie.

I hope your kiddos remember to let their lights shine out into the world this week!

See you Sunday (in costume?),

Jamie
