ORUCC Youth 11/5/23

Hello friends, happy November! Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour this weekend!

This Sunday, 11/5, at 9:00 a.m. we have a special opportunity for our children and youth to participate in a labyrinth walk and contemplative practice/prayer stations. This will be a multi-age experience held in several rooms of the education wing. TRU Function will practice from 10:00-12:00. 
Looking ahead, we also have some more exciting things on the horizon: 
November 3, 6:00-8:00: Family Game Night– bring your dinner and a game for this relaxed hangout time in Friendship Hall with others from ORUCC! 
**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. 
Grace and peace,
