4th - 6th Grade Our Whole Lives Classes

4th - 6th Grade Our Whole Lives Classes

4-6th Grade Our Whole Lives

4-6th grade O.W.L. begins January 27th and runs on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45 through April 7th, with the required guardian orientation on January 13th at 1:00.

O.W.L classes will impact Religious Education in the following ways:

Pre K-1st grade class will not be impacted.

2nd-4th grade class will be held as normal, minus the children participating in O.W.L.

Junior/Senior Youth class WILL NOT BE HELD! If you have a child who comes to the Junior/Senior Youth class they are encouraged to participate in O.W.L if age-appropriate. If they are not within the age limits they can assist in one of the other R.E. classes. This would be a wonderful opportunity to be a role model for the younger children in our congregation!

Adult R.E. 2 will be transformed into the guardian parallel class. For the first time, guardians who have children in the O.W.L class have the opportunity to participate in the same curriculum. Our hope is that this will foster open and trusting communication at home!

Christmas Day Dinner

On Christmas Day from 1-5PM in the Fellowship Hall we will have a potluck meal at the church.   Bring your board games, playing cards, and puzzles... Let's enjoy time together!  Signup sheets for attendees are available on the counter at the back of the sanctuary.  Sign up to bring a side, soft drink, or dessert of your choice. BYOB. If you'd rather contribute with cleanup instead of bringing a dish, that would work, too.  Also, consider bringing extra Gladware/Tupperware to tote home possible leftovers.
