Building and Grounds Work Day

9 am We need YOU!
Contribute a few hours of your time to the upkeep of your church!
We are unable to provide a nursery for the Work Day. But for those requiring child oversight, there are “family-tasks” that parents and their children can take on that would be most helpful. These would be indoor tasks that include cleaning and organizational improvements to the RE area. If interested, please inform Amber Fox or Bob Eckels by November 1st.
Check the First UU Calendar for the dates and times of scheduled events.

In our continued exploration of Zest, we spent Sunday exploring the Eureka moments of creation. Each class read Rosie Revere, Engineer and then we had an open-ended period to play with a well-stocked Tinker Table. The idea behind a Tinker Table is to support a fluid and creative exploration that lends itself to STEM projects. (So often we craft or create artistic creations, but this particular set of materials is geared towards invention.) The kids had great fun with it, creating all sorts of little inventions. There was a full-length-arm-cupholder, a horsefly catcher, and several puppets.
The teachers were Timmy M., Alicia M., and Adam F.
Nursery care available between 10:00 am and 12:15 pm on Sundays.
