Learning Center This Week



Hello friends,
As part of our September Blessings and Connecting focus,  30 Back to School packages were sent to our UCC children. Each package included a UCC handmade mask, Jesus fish symbol stickers, and a leather Witness bag tag. Our hope is these special gifts will remind the children God loves them and is always with them and their church family loves them and will always be there for them. The fish symbols will also help them remember to share their love with others.
A big thank you to Linda Edward for sewing the 30 masks and Linda Brown for preparing the packages. Here is Elena and Melina Sun wearing their new masks and opening their gifts. The children were so excited to received such a special delivery.

SAVE THE DATE: Our UCC Zoom Family Trivia Night is September 25th at 6  PM, hosted by our very own Rob Perry. Grab a pizza and join the fun. From Disney, 21st Century music, geography to a mystery round, you’re invited to be a part of this fun fellowship-friendly competition. Stay tuned for more info.
PORCH VISITS ARE STILL HAPPENING: Let me know if you like to meet up for the first time or visit again. We are having such a wonderful time connecting on the deck, enjoying the beauty of Cedar Chapel, and walking the grounds looking for crosses.
TUTORING AVAILABLE: Tense about times tables?  Frustrated with fractions? Help is available from retired teacher, Nancy Adams, to help you through those maddening moments when math just doesn’t add up. Send me an email if your child could use extra support or if you are a retired teacher willing to lend a hand.
Stay safe, Be Kind and remember God loves you,
In faith,  Patty
