WEEKLY UPDATE | June 9-15, 2019
THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 9
Summer Services Begin
"Ethereal, yet Grounded"
Anne Principe
Sunday, June 9 | 10am
To be aspirational and practical, hopeful yet realistic, compassionate yet...compassionate requires a few things that are simple, yet not always easy. Community member Anne Principe invites a creative exploration of the mantra, "just begin, already." Worship will include a special musical collaboration with Music Director, Kenneth and violinist Josh Knowles. Recently Josh's new works of collaboration with principal dancers from the Boston Ballet have been featured in several arts media outlets.
Children and Youth Programming
Young Stewards
The children of the RE program raised $300 through their weekly offering and lived out our Fifth Principle by voting to send the money to the Northeast Animal Shelter. Great work!
Children's RE Program Summer Break Begins June 16
On Sunday, June 9th, there will be an RE program for younger children only (PS-2nd grade). Older children are invited to stay in the sanctuary for an accessible and engaging worship.
 
Starting on June 16th, the children's RE program goes on Summer Break. This means that we have no formal program until after Labor Day, although keep an eye out for a couple special Sundays when we'll have a children's program around ethical eating. Although there are no volunteer teachers and staff leading classes during the summer, the nursery will be open for use with some toys, books and activities. Parents/guardians are responsible for watching their children. If you have any questions, contact Mark LaPointe, DCLL.
