11/5 Children and Youth Labyrinth Walk

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

This week, instead of our regular 9 a.m. Sunday school programming, all children and youth are invited to take part in a Labyrinth walk and contemplative spiritual practice stations. Everyone PreK-High School will first gather together in the Bridges Room. After a brief opening conversation, small groups of children and youth will have the opportunity to travel through our small labyrinth in the Johnson Room. Those waiting to walk the labyrinth will be invited to freely explore artistic, tactile, and mindfulness stations. 

Upcoming! Save the Dates!
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. 

November 23: Thanksgiving Day Berbee Derby

Calling all walkers, run/walkers, and runners! Join us at the 40th Annual Berbee Derby. It's too late to enter for a team shirt, but you can still run, walk, and pose for selfies with the ORUCC bunch! https://www.berbeederby.com/registration/ 

Thank you for your support of the youth programming opportunities at ORUCC.
