Learning Center This Week


THANK YOU TO OUR FABLOUS CHURCH FAMILY:  for the generous and loving memorial for our Archana.  The donated foods, the set-up, the clean-up, and the support in general was overwhelming.  The family was deeply touched by your efforts.  Now that Melindah has returned to her home, cards and condolences may be sent to:

Melindah Sharma

449 King George Road

Basking Ridge, NJ  07920


MEMORIAL GIFT:  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Archana Sharma Trust Attn: Megan Weymouth, United Congregational Church.  The trust will fund the education of socio-economically challenged girls.


SUMMER NURSERY:  During the summer months the Nursery will be available for child care for infants through 2nd grade.   Thank you, Becky and Volunteers!  Please take note that Becky will need as much help as she can get during this time until we can fill the vacancy in the Nursery.  If you can NOT serve in the Nursery on your assigned date, please do find a substitute.


PEACE GARDEN:  Now that we are experiencing warmer weather, we will resume our work on the Peace Garden.  Work days will be Saturdays from 2:00-5:00 p.m. through July (possibly August).  If you can be there, please sign up with Megan in the Learning Center Office or at 439-8785.


IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO SIGN UP FOR TEACHING IN THE FALL.  The new volunteer teacher board is up and ready for you to stake your claim.  Please do take a look over the summer and, more importantly, sign up!


COMING UP IN THE FALL:  For our Learning Center’s 2017-2018 church school year, we will return to the timeless stories of The Old Testament.  We will celebrate Moses, Job, Abraham, David, Joseph, and so many more.  Every few years we make a concerted effort to teach the children about the pre-Christian foundation of our faith with these great old stories, and now is the time.  Hope your kids will join us!
