Here at First Parish we offer age appropriate religious education for all our children and youth. As you enter the building, our Nursery, Playroom, and Sunday School wing is to the right and down the hall past the staff offices, and Jr. Youth meets upstairs in the loft. (stairs directly to the right as you enter)
Our Nursery and Playroom attendants are in their rooms at 9:50 Sunday mornings and parents are welcome to drop off their children before service. Parents may then pick children up once Sunday School is over.
Sunday School Kids and Jr. Youth typically join in the first 15 minutes of worship and then head off to their rooms after the Time for All Ages story. Sunday School and Jr. Youth end at 11:15, a teacher will bring all children to coffee hour and release them to a Patent/Guardian.
Our theme this month is: Trust
Here’s how you can take it home:
“What does it mean to be a family of Trust?”
Family Movie Night – How to Train Your Dragon (PG) Watch asHiccup a Norse teenager befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, and they learn to put their trust in each other.
Family Adventure – Indoor/Outdoor Trust Walk One person will shut their eyes or be blindfolded. The other family members will be their guides, and lead them through the designated space. Start with easy space to navigate (empty room) and with each round increase the difficulty (navigate through the whole house or out to the back yard) The guide is responsible for the safety of their partner.
Family Check In (great dinner/car conversation for our Jr. Youth families) Facing our fears takes a whole lot of self-trust. But what if the secret path to overcoming our fears and believing in ourselves is not one big leap, but instead a bunch of baby steps? This exercise is all about those baby steps. Here’s your challenge in a nutshell: As a family talk with each other about your core fears and then help each person find one small way of facing them.
