Sunday School

No Sunday School this week – it’s a Fifth Sunday so we all worship together.

Children and Youth included -- we are looking for poems that have nurtured and/or challenged your faith, your humanity, your spirit. Send them along! If you would also be willing to read them or reflect on them in worship, please let us know that as well. Questions? [email protected]

This winter our children are learning about some of the people who met Jesus. Most of these stories are found in the Gospel of John: Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman, the first disciples, a blind man, the little boy with fish and bread, and many more.

Youth are using a new curriculum called Feasting on the Word. This curriculum is lectionary based with activities and discussions around topics of interest to youth as they relate to scripture.

Beware of scams and phishing! Fraudulent emails pretending to be church staff have been around for quite some time. Fraudulent texts claiming to be Kevin have started to come to PUCCers’ phones this week. Be careful and do not respond to these or other suspicious messages - even if an email or text at first sounds like someone you know and trust. Reminder: be vigilant with your personal information!

Ice Skating at Queeny Park in Ballwin on Sunday, February 5 from 3-4:30pm

Meet us in the lobby at 2:30pm.

Love Came for Me

by Mo Thomas



  You peeled away all of the

     Psychology, theology,

        Masks, tasks,

     Fear-induced analysis, emotional paralysis,

  Games, shames, blames,

              And fancy man-plans



  Reached into the Deepest Part of me



  Lay my true self

     Exposed and vulnerable and

        Terrified that no one

     Loved me, valued me

  Understood me, loved me, enjoyed me.



  I looked left and caught a glimpse of

     Reality's Eyes Burning with Holy Fire

        And became fully persuaded

     That I've been Loved and Embraced

  From before there was time.
