Programming for Children
April 16th
Nursery Care opens at 8:30am. Antonia and Amalia are ready to play with your little one!
K-5 Sunday School starts at 9am. This week, we will study the Books of Poetry. After practicing our skills in finding a bible verse, the children will have the opportunity to solve a cryptogram, write their own poem/psalm, build a tower to remind them of Proverbs 18:10, and find a proverb in the sand. Paul Vash and Jadyn Gilbert will guide the children in their learning. 
Next Week, 4/23, the children invite YOU to join them on a labyrinth walk. More details to come.

April Compassion Offering
This month our compassion offering is for our UCC camps in Wisconsin. We are so fortunate to have 3 amazing camps, each in a different setting and each offering unique programs: Moon Beach in the North Woods, Daycholah on Green Lake and Cedar Valley in Washington County. 
Camps provide sacred places which enhance our spiritual lives. The experience of living with others builds stronger connections. Camps can nourish us, provide respite so we can return to our daily lives refreshed and ready to serve others. By spending times in the out-of-doors we better appreciate the gifts of creation and therefore are eager to care for the earth. 
Our UCC camps also offer many volunteer opportunities, whether it be work projects or assisting at a camp session like Camp AweSum for families touched by autism.
Our camps need our volunteer and financial support. Please click on the link below to learn more about our sacred sites.

You can make a donation by check, on the memo line, please write “compassion” and mail to ORUCC, 1501 Gilbert Road, Madison, WI 53711, or donate online from our website. The link is https://orucc.org/contribute/support/
