Children

When a child is baptized at ULC, the congregation is asked to care for the child, teach the child the Word of God, and guide the child in being a faithful witness of the love of God.  Given this commitment, children at ULC are encouraged to participate in worship where they can listen to a children’s message and share in Holy Communion.  In addition to the regular classes on Sunday morning, the children participate in a Christmas pageant.  They also participate in the “Walk with the Magi” every Epiphany Day (January 6).  The children join in the Palm Sunday processional with our ecumenical partners in the community, and get to pet a real donkey.  At least twice a year, they spend time tending the church garden as a part of our commitment of being a Greening Congregation.  On Children’s Sabbath, the children take an active role in leading the worship service for the congregation.

Hygiene Kits
 
During Lent this year, the Sunday School classes will be collecting donations in order to assemble and donate hygiene kits with Lutheran World Relief. These kits contain very basic hygiene items, but they are much needed around the world. The kits contain 1 towel (dark color recommended), 1 adult size toothbrush (in original packaging), 2 bath size bars of soap (4 – 5 ounces, in original packaging), 1 sturdy comb (remove packaging), and 1 metal nail clipper (remove packaging). If you would like to donate any of these supplies, there will be a container on the table outside of the Chapel following our Sunday service. We will collect these items all through Lent, compiling and donating them after Easter Sunday. 
 

Egg Dyeing Event

We would like to invite all families to come to an egg dyeing party during education hour on Palm Sunday.  We will set up egg dyeing stations downstairs in the fellowship hall following service on Sunday, April 13.  Kits and dye will be provided, but we are asking each family to bring 12 hardboiled eggs.  If you are unable to bring eggs, please still join us downstairs!  This is a great chance to dye some eggs with your friends here at ULC!  

 

Easter Egg Hunt

The Sunday school classes will have an Easter egg hunt during education hour (11:00 a.m. – Noon) on Easter morning, April 20.  We will have eggs hidden and baskets for the children to use, so all you need to bring is yourself!  This is open to any children who want to participate, so invite your friends!

 

Earth Day Celebration

The Sunday school classes will be planting flowers in honor of Earth Day again this year.  We will be planting on Sunday, April 27, so make sure you wear or bring clothes that can get dirty, and some gloves!  Our resident plant master, Brad Anderson will be helping the children take care of our garden and learn about some of the vegetation.  All children are invited to attend, and friends are always welcome.  The classes will meet upstairs for opening and then head to the garden as a group.
