We have resumed our pre-COVID practice where the children and youth will join us in the sanctuary for the first 15-20 minutes and then we will sing them out to their classes.
If your child does not want to go to class, that is also OK — our services are welcoming for all ages.
We will be starting out initially with two classes grouped by age / grade:
Elementary – Pre-K – 5th Grade (Teachers: Ashford McLain and Kevin Henry) — Our theme is “Peace, Social Justice, and the Interdependent Web.” This week the group turns its focus to a topic that can be tough at any age — bullying — and some strategies for responding in those situations.
Middle and High School (Teachers: Ken Peterson and Eric First) — This Sunday Maggie Molisee will be back to start finalizing the mural plans.
We would love for everyone in this age group to have input so it’s a great Sunday to come back to middle school / high school religious education.
With the time remaining and this Sunday being Biodiversity Sunday, the group will also explore the effects of environmental racism on the ecosystem here in Louisiana.
Note — We have not yet brought back nursery care for our littlest members and visitors who cannot yet be vaccinated for COVID. However, babies and toddlers are welcome to stay with their parents in the sanctuary. We are very understanding about baby sounds in worship.
