A little more the church: This is a super fun church! Pre-pandemic we had 30-45 kids on a Sunday morning and Sept-Oct was our high attendance season. We have a few queer families, several mixed race and immigrant families, and a couple gender expansive kids of different ages. Our families tend to be open, friendly, and flexible. We've kept in touch during the pandemic with monthly resource bags, a video Christmas pageant, and video children & youth Sunday. Folks are SUPER excited to be back in the fall!
We are NOT planning to restart our Sunday School program right away in September - the families are ready to be back, but the adult volunteer teachers are not. Instead we are planning on short, intentionally intergenerational worship with activity kits, followed by intergenerational faith formation during "coffee hour" (in quotes b/c we aren't certain whether or not we'll be serving coffee & food yet.) The running idea is to collaborate with the church quilters on a group quilt project where folks make squares that commemorate the last year apart and represent hopes for the church for life after Covid. AND to offer games at sports outside in the yard - people can connect through art and creation or through the body and movement depending on day/preference/ability/ etc.
If you or someone you know might be interested, please be in touch!
