Programming for Children
February 5th
Nursery Care opens at 8:30. Antonia and Joey are ready to play with your little one!
K-5 Sunday School 9am: This week, we will start our study of the five “Books of Law.” After practicing our skills in finding a bible verse the children will have the opportunity to paint a creation scene (found in Genesis), create a 10 commandments tablet (found in Exodus, Deuteronomy, and Leviticus), search for some of the animals Noah would have brought along on the ark in the sandbox (found in Genesis), and decorate a bible bookmark. Sally Allen, Karen Jaehnig, and Josie Gilbert will guide the children in their learning. 
All of the content your child will experience comes from the curriculum resource, “Learnjng to Use My Bible.” Should you ever wish to continue this study at home, I highly recommend this user friendly student resource: https://tinyurl.com/74n8nmj6 I have one on hand if you would ever like to peek at it before purchasing. 
Communion Sunday 10am: Pastor Julia & Pastor Ken want to connect with the children in worship on Sunday! They will lead the Joys & Concerns, Message for All Ages Sermon time and Communion by engaging with the children and inviting the kids into activity and reflection. We will enjoy a full service of intergenerational joy!

February Compassion Offering
Worker Justice Wisconsin
Worker Justice Wisconsin (WJW) is a Madison-based nonprofit that builds collective worker power together with faith and labor allies. Our worker center educates and empowers employees who do not have a union. We help them file complaints with state agencies, incubate worker-owned cooperatives, and train workers to organize their coworkers. With a mostly bilingual staff, WJW pays special attention to the Spanish-speaking, immigrant working class. In 2022, WJW trained 140 workers, helped recover $121,560.11 in previously owed but unpaid wages, organized two job sites, and incubated three cooperatives. Of the 200+ workers who opened cases in 2022, over 90% were immigrants, and 89% were Latinx. 
February’s Compassion Offering will be deposited in the WJW Solidarity Fund. The Fund encourages workers to engage in job site organizing by providing a basic financial safety net. If a worker is retaliated against or fired by their employer for engaging in legally protected organizing activity, or if a workforce decides to go on strike, they can receive up to 50% of their income from the fund (so long as funds last and up to two months). The Fund is crucial to bolstering workers’ bargaining power. It is not charity. It is a direct contribution to workers’ struggle to overcome structural inequality.
