CHURCH SCHOOL – A message from Carole 🙂 

Jr. High/Sr. High: Join Brianna in Sunday School Zoom this Sunday to hear a presentation and have discussion regarding mental health. These are challenging times and we all need to take care of ourselves! Part of good health practice is connecting to our spirituality. Remember that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and God loves you! Come and listen/talk/discuss this Sunday, Jan. 17th at 11:30am. A Zoom link will be sent out with the Sunday School email. Contact Carole if you have any questions. 

LOGOS

CONNECTING TOGETHER (formerly Women Together)

Join Your Story is Our Story, a virtual night of connection on Monday, January 18, 7:30 to 9:00PM. This gathering will continue a focus on resilience, and will include stories from participants who are “learning to pivot.” Liz Fryer will walk the group through a journaling activity. For Zoom info please contact Kathy Sauve  

FAITHFUL PARENTING in the PANDEMIC

Parenting is hard, especially during a pandemic. Would you appreciate a child-free time to connect with other parents experiencing the same challenges?  Would you value receiving faith-at-home resources to learn simple and fun faith rituals at home with your kids? This month, Courtney will begin an online group for parents and guardians of children 12 & under for the purpose of mutual connection and support. The program will consist of a weekly, 4-week session. Following this first session, we hope to connect with parents and guardians of teens.  Please let Courtney know, by clicking this link and completing an online poll, if Sunday nights at 8pm (Jan 17, 24, 31, Feb 7) OR Thursday nights at 8pm (Jan 21, 28, Feb 4, 11) would work best for you.  You can also reach out to Courtney by email if you have any questions or want to know more details.

Final Thought

These are hard days, especially with the news of a lockdown extension. Remember to give yourself an extra measure of grace and compassion. And do the same for others as well. And why not tell someone today that you love them?
