10/29 Sunday School

Nursery Care opens at 8:30. Jade and Marie are ready to play with your little one!

Sunday School starts at 9 am. PreK-1 children are invited to sing with Julie in the William Johnson room from 9:00-9:15. After the music, Jill and Josie will guide them in the Parable of The Treasure.
The 2-5 grade classroom will continue their study of New Testament History. This week the children will experience Pentecost through a shared reading with accompanying movements. After the story, the children will work together to find bible verses and then freely work through stations that include decorating a candle, watercolors, and sand play. Diane and Jadyn will guide the children in their learning. 
Upcoming! Save the Dates!

FRIDAY! October 27, 6:00-9:00 p.m.: Treinen Farms Bonfire and Corn Maze

An all-ages fellowship event! We have a bonfire ring reserved and will provide supplies for s’mores. Families are responsible for their own tickets for admission ($15.50 per person over 2 years of age, can be purchased online ahead of time or at the gate). Please RSVP to Kate ([email protected]) if you are planning to attend so that she can ballpark our s'mores supplies 🙂

November 19:  Bible Distribution

During worship, ORUCC will strengthen the baptismal commitment to the children in our church community with a Bible distribution ceremony. This ritual is for children in grades 2-12 who have NOT received a Bible from ORUCC previously. Please complete THIS FORM if you wish for your child to be a part of this ritual.  It is okay to not partake this year if you are unsure. We will have other Bible distribution ceremonies in future years. Please see Pastor Kate or Julie Mazer if you have any questions.
