Sunday School

Youth Sunday is June 11! Our theme this year is True Greatness. This comes from our Sunday school lessons this spring about Jesus teaching the disciples that being great isn’t always about being first or being the best at something. It’s about serving others.

We’ll have our one and only rehearsal with everyone on Saturday, June 10, from 9:30- 11:30 in the sanctuary. Please make every effort to come for at least part of the rehearsal, particularly if you have a speaking part. Younger children and youth without speaking parts can just come for the first 30 minutes so we can run through the music together and everyone can see where they’ll be sitting and what the service will look like.

During the rehearsal, we’ll also pot the flowers that we’ll distribute to the congregation at the end of the service. It would be great if a couple of people could help with this. We’ll have the flowers, potting soil, and cups all ready. Please let Kate know if you’re available to help. Thank you!

Our last day of regular Sunday school will be on Sunday, June 18. After that, we’ll move into our Sunday school schedule of one multi-age class. Summer Sunday school is fun and relaxed with popsicles for snack and air conditioning for hot days! We’ll continue to use the Shine curriculum for a multi-age group and we’ll have time to play too.

Church Picnic

Our all-church picnic will be on Saturday, June 17 from noon-4 p.m. at Lexington Christian Academy, 48 Bartlett Ave. in Lexington. The CE ministry will provide hot dogs, drinks, and chips. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. There’s a pool and tennis courts, so bring your bathing suit and towel and/or a tennis racquet and balls if you’d like to play. There is plenty of shade to sit in near the pool. Bring a game or puzzle to share if you’d like. There’s also a ball field if anyone would like to organize a softball or whiffle ball game. We hope to see you there!

Youth group (seventh grade and up)

We’ll meet at North Prospect Union UCC in West Medford on Sunday, June 11, from 6:30-8 for a karaoke and video game night. Look for an email with details!
