This Sunday, 11/12, at 9:00 our Newsletter group will meet in the Day room, and the Breakfast Club will meet in the Frank room. Susan will send out more details to the Newsletter youth about what to expect for this week; Breakfast Club will be working on preparing a Holiday Gift tree to benefit the Early Childhood Initiative with RISE. This community organization supports children and families in our neighborhood, and we are happy to continue the tradition of helping provide gifts to our community this Christmas season.
Mark your calendars:
November 17: 5:30-7:30 “Friendsgiving” Party at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church– Our youth (6th-high school) are invited to get to know other youth at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church (6205 University Ave, Madison, WI 53705) at a potluck “Friendsgiving” party. We are looking to do some combined youth programming with St. Dunstan's and other progressive Christian churches in the future; this is one step toward this exciting collaboration!
November 19: First Service Trip Deadline–If your youth (entering 8th-H.S. graduation) would like to come on the Service Trip to Nashville, TN, please let Pastor Kate know by Nov. 19th. First payment of $250 is due by that date.
Thank you all for your continued support of our Children and Youth at ORUCC!
Grace and peace,
