Programming for Children
November 13th
Nursery Care opens at 8:30. Antonia and Joey are ready to play with your little one.
Kindergarten-5th grade will continue their focus on Prayer. This week’s focus is: ”Intercession” In this practice, the children will be invited to reflect upon their week and create prayers for the world, their family, friends, or a pet. They will also continue working on their “Examen Ropes” by selecting beads to symbolize those emotions and have the opportunity to paint a stone to remember their ”Breath Prayer” (a simple prayer you can think of any time you take a breath). Jadyn Gilbert and Karen Jaehnig will guide them through the discussion and active stations.

November Compassion Offering
Our 3 Neighborhood Schools–Anana Elementary, Orchard Ridge Elementary & Toki Middle School
Our 3 neighborhood schools – Anana Elementary, Orchard Ridge Elementary, and Toki Middle School — are always in need of our support. And this is especially true in 2022, when budgets are tight and when so many families living in southwest Madison are stretched financially.  
As you’ll see from this short video, each school is planning to make use of our compassion offering in different ways. These range from funding basic supplies, to providing students with winter clothing, to paying for yearbooks so no child is left without one, and to beautifying a stage so students and staff can take pride in their facility. 
We invite you to please give generously and give what you can in support of our neighborhood schools. Thank you Orchard Ridge United Church of Christ for your timely and generous support!
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 at orucc.org. Click the brown button “Contribute” in the upper right of the home page or click this LINK.
