RE News for Sunday, November 20th, 2011
Posted on November 17th, 2011

Hello Families,

With so much going on at church this week, I thought it would be a good idea to send out a reminder as to just what is cooking. This Sunday 11/20, is the last "faith in action" Sunday until sometime in January. The children have several initiatives going that will wrap up this Sunday:

7 Cents a Day jars - bring these into the sanctuary this Sunday and they will be poured into a communal vessel at the beginning of the service. The children will spend time rolling them over the next couple of Sundays.

Interfaith Social Services Food Drive - Thanks to all those who have donated. If you haven't yet donated, this Sunday is your last chance. The kids will check out how much food was donated and will load it into Carmel Callan's car. She has graciously volunteered to deliver the goods to Interfaith Social Services in Quincy, an organization that provides a range of services to people in 10 communities from Quincy to Scituate.

Bake Sale - Okay, the kids wanted to do this and I might have suggested we do this in January with so much going on...but I didn't. So, it does not need to be a huge event...if your child is invested in bringing something in for the bake sale, please do so. With all of the food and money coming in this Sunday, the kids will be busy and energized by what they have generated. It should prove to be gratifying. They will vote this Sunday on which organization to donate the money to: Heifer International, Oxfam, Scituate Food Pantry, or the Plymouth area Coalition for the Homeless.

Adults needed - Please contact me asap if you can help out with this Sunday's R.E. program. After this, our holiday play helpers will be "on" - thanks again to Leah Todd, Ann Hale, Laura Carson-Laciner, and Laura Smith.

Speaking of the holiday play, sign-up forms are due for the Holiday Play - click here to download. Please fill out and return this Sunday. It seems we have several kids vying for the larger speaking roles which is wonderful, but we may need to do a lottery so we want to be sure all of the names of those interested are entered. We need to be ready to roll for the first rehearsal on December 4th. Scripts will be disseminated to the kids just as soon as we have the roles assigned.

One last note. Religious education curricula will start back up after the holidays and at this point we have no one signed up to lead classes. Stay tuned for a scheduled "Orientation to Religious Education Facilitation". Attendance at this will help us fill the schedule and answer any questions you may have about what it means to serve your church in this way.

Thank you and see you soon. Feel free to get in touch with any questions!
