Children’s Religious Education For December

Hi everyone!
I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying the spirit of the holidays that you are celebrating.
Our Story of All Ages title will be changed to Time for All Ages as we will be doing other things not only reading stories. We will be talking about different topics, poems, and as you have seen with Fry Bread last week, we will be adding other multi-generational participation plays or readings.

Christmas Angel Tree Project

We have the wonderful opportunity to participate in the Christmas Angel Tree Project, and our angels will be buying Christmas gifts for children in need through the generous donations of our fellowship.
We will be shopping at Walmart this year (meet inside Walmart at the pharmacy entrance) in Morehead City on Saturday, December 4th at 10:00 a.m. After shopping we will be going to the Sunday School Building at 2900 for pizza lunch, cookies, and drinks and the wrapping of presents.

We need to recognize that COVID 19 and the variants are still amongst us so we will be following CDC guidelines, which the UUA, our Fellowship, and the State of North Carolina also follow for all participating in this day. So, we ask that masks be worn, social distance as much as we can, and wash your hands often. Of course, when we are having pizza for lunch, we will be cautious about where we are all sitting.

Please email Sarah Sutherland at ucf.re.sarah@gmail.com if you and/or your child/children would like to participate in shopping and gift wrapping. If you only have time to shop or gift wrap, please let me know ahead of time. If you only want to gift wrap, come by the church Sunday School building located behind the church at 2900 Bridges Street at around noontime and join us for pizza and gift wrapping.

I will need to know if you are dropping off your child/children at Walmart and then picking them up at 2 p.m. so I can make sure we have the right number of seats for transporting your children from Walmart to the church. As we have done in the past, we will ask parents to help transport children back to the church if we don’t have enough seats in our cars.

I so look forward to seeing families from our church again and helping out those less fortunate. If your family is in need during this holiday season, please call me directly at 603-254-5559 or by
email. This conversation will be held in confidentiality.

Let us be thankful for our friendships, family, and our loving church community.

In Spirit and Love,

Sarah
