Circus Yoga at FUSS: Parents welcome!

This Sunday our children in the Pre K thru third grade classes will have an opportunity to participate in Circus Yoga.

Circus Yoga teacher Christine Carpenter will lead the group. I am excited about this because we have been offering yoga in different forms to our children through Spirit Play. I often see children moving through yoga poses on their own or with a friend when I am in the classroom. My hope is that Circus Yoga can broaden our understanding of the spiritual practice of yoga in community.

Parents are welcome to join us! Come in comfortable clothing.

We will be in the PreK/K room and the back half of the dining room. Circus Yoga will run from 10:30 -11:30 AM. Then we will offer a snack.

Multigenerational Religious Education

This Sunday Religious Education will be part of CC&C.

From 9:30 - 10:15 we'll show part of a fiilm titled: Three Faiths: One God. It's a look at the similarities between Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Childcare will be available in the nursery!

The following Sunday, March 21, will be a multigenerational worship service and we'll hear stories from these same wisdom traditions told by youth from Children at the Well.

On Stewardship

Last Sunday in Children's Chapel we talked about stewardship. I talked about what it meant to be a steward and the children offered ways in which they were stewards.

We can be stewards in big and small ways. Stewardship calls us to think locally and globally.

Globally our children have been collecting pennies in our Pennies for Peace project. We will collect pennies until our May Children's Chapel. Then we will count them and donate them. The jar for collecting pennies is in the Waters House entry. We also have it at Children's Chapel.

Locally, very local, we are looking for help painting classrooms in Waters House this Sunday. Buildings and Grounds chair Kim Schnell has been really wonderful in keeping attention on Waters House and working on fixing it up. We Need You! We will be painting Sunday between noon and 3 pm. Come at any time and stay for as long as you are able. The Religious Education Council will provide pizza. Please consider being a steward of our space.
