Programming for Children
April 30th
Nursery Care opens at 8:30am. Antonia and Joey are ready to play with your little one! This is Antonia’s last Sunday, so we will bless her during church!
The week we’ve been preparing for has arrived! This Sunday, we will gather at 9am in the Bridges Room. Once everyone has arrived, we will move to the sanctuary to rehearse our ukulele songs with TruFunction. We’ll rehearse “When the Saints Go Marching In,” and “I Can See Clearly Now,” a few times and then likely move back to the Bridges Room for some craft/playtime before worship. 
The service will begin with “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Your child will be on the platform at the start of worship. We’re still sorting out the kinks of when “I Can See Clearly Now” will happen. We’ll be able to practice that transition on Sunday morning. Your child will stay for the whole service and should sit with you in the congregation. 
If your child has their own ukulele, please remember to bring it with you on Sunday. 

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/
