I just read an article on how to keep our former youth connected when they head off to college or to start a new job. One of the things they recommended was to send care packages. We have been doing this for several years now. And I know for a fact that they are always appreciated. This Sunday, The Got Kids Group will be packing up goodies to send to college students and to our deployed military friends. If you would like to contribute, please bring in shippable items this Sunday. If you know someone who would like to receive one of our care packages bring us their name and mailing address.
Holding multigenerational events is another great way to keep people of all ages connected to our Fellowship. On April 4th, the RE Committee is sponsoring a workshop day where people of all ages can learn from each other. The event will run from 10:00am-3:00pm with a potluck lunch in the middle. We will set up different stations indoors and out where people can share their hobbies and skills.
We need teachers and participants. If you have a hobby or skill that you would like to share with others, please let Joanne know. Some ideas might be knitting, crocheting, playing an instrument, changing the oil in a car. You may know a sport like soccer, volleyball, kickball, hacky-sac, jump rope). Or maybe you like arts and crafts, drawing, water color, collage, quilting, photography. Do you speak another language, have a special computer skill, or want to share your knowledge of local history? Children might show off their Lego building skills or give tips on how to win a popular video game. These would all make great workshops. People of all ages have special interests that are worth sharing.
Don’t want to teach? Quench your curious spirit! Participants should come ready to learn something new or improve on something they’ve already started to learn. There will be something for everyone.
Lunch will be served from 12:00-1:00. Please bring a dish to share that’s allergy friendly. Workshops will be held for one or two hour slots depending on the activity. There will be a sign-up sheet in the foyer.
