Let's Plan the PERFECT Party for Paul Bunyan!

Sunday, February 25th @1:00pm
HAUMC Sanctuary

*Don't miss the sneak peek February 11th!

Come along with us and join the party!

"Big Ears and the Blue Ox" is an original interactive concert presentation with brass instruments, drums, and narrator designed for children ages 2 - 10. The concert takes kids on a trip through the Minnesota woods while they help Big Ears the Rabbit build the perfect song for Paul Bunyan's birthday party. Along the way, children learn how to carefully listen for musical concepts like melody, rhythm and harmony while singing and moving their bodies to the music. 

RSVP to the Facebook event here.

The Values Project is a year-long initiative designed to equip families to raise children who thrive emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Get inspiration, practical ideas, family activities, and parenting tips from our network of seasoned parents and faith leaders, because it takes a village to raise a good human. Each month we'll explore a different value-like honesty, loyalty, creativity, kindness, and more.

When we recognize our shared humanity in other people, how else can we respond to them but with kindness?

But that day, she had jokingly told my son he needed to give the yardstick back-she actually needed it for something-and the rest of the class booed....   Read More
