Orange Team Makes 200 Sandwiches!
As part of our church wide recognition of the Sabbath to End Homelessness, our Orange Team examined how homelessness affects kids their age.  The class read and discussed a book called, "Crenshaw", about a young person whose family is currently experiencing homelessness.  After their book discussion, the class and their parents were invited to tour the Dignity Center to learn more about how advocates come together to help individuals find a sustainable path out of homelessness.  They ended their morning by working together to make 200 sandwiches to share with clients of the Dignity Center.  Families were surprised to learn how many kids are affected by homelessness, and all were thankful for an opportunity to lend-a-hand!

Special Thanks to our Orange Team Teachers, Judy Tucker, Tammy Lundquist, and Janet Jacobs for organizing such a great learning experience!

Copper Street Brass 
Family Concert
Sunday, February 17 @ 1:00 in the Sanctuary
Being a professional musician is something people do as a job. Just like a builder builds houses, we musicians use tools (instruments) and materials (building blocks of music) to do our job of building songs. We'll meet each brass instrument, learn its name and job, and hear how it is used as a tool to build songs using musical building blocks like melody, harmony, and rhythm. This program is open to all but is especially geared for kids ages 6-10.
Love is Love is Love is Love:

Empathy Parenting for LYFE
February 10 @ 11:15 in the Social Hall

Empathy is at the heart of what it means to be human.  It's the foundation for acting ethically, for good relationships, and for loving well.  It is also at the heart of preventing bullying and racism.  Heather Alden and Kathryn Johnson, Hennepin members and professionals in our public schools, will lead a discussion on what empathy looks like in children and what we can do to foster these important skills.
