First U Neighborhood Care Packages Project
All RE Families are invited to gather in the church parking lot for a volunteer project on May 22nd at 10am. We will be assembling the First U Neighborhood Care Packages. These are the bags that Cat gives to people who come to our door looking for help; they include personal care items such as shampoo, soap, lotion, nail clippers, combs, etc. Cat gives them to people along with bus passes, gas cards, or restaurant gift certificates, depending on what each person needs. We will be assembling 100 care packages! Please register below so we know how many people to expect. This is a multigenerational project for children of all ages and their caregivers to do together. We will have a brief (socially-distanced) social time with (individually wrapped) snacks after we have finished assembling the care packages. If you'd like a place to sit, please bring your own chair. Remember to wear your masks!

Share your light with our community by joining this First U CommUUnity Chalice Lighting Project. This idea comes to us from the Sanchez-Soto family, who demonstrates the passing of the flame in this video: https://youtu.be/8QN9jKeH0HY. Written directions can be found here: https://bit.ly/33EmFdp
You’re invited to use a chalice you have at home, one you create with this month’s RE At-Home kit, or any candle you’d like. Don’t forget to “pass the flame” after you light your chalice, and send your video (Google Drive works well) to email@example.com
Sunday Service Chalice Lighters
Are you missing all our friendly faces? Me too! Please sign up to be a Sunday Service Chalice Lighter at one of our Zoom services by clicking here: https://bit.ly/3i0unDb.
All you need is a candle (traditional or battery will do), and we will spotlight your screen as your family member(s) ignite the flame. If your family would also like to lead the chalice-lighting words, the worship leader will provide them for you. Though it isn’t required, you are welcome to use a chalice if you have one at home.
If your 7th-12th grader is interested in joining our Middle/High School Youth Group (YRUU) (meeting weekly on Wed from 7:00-8:30pm), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
