In honor of Earth Day, the WCUC youth set out to learn, explore, and volunteer at Mass Audubon’s Habitat Education Center and Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Belmont, MA. While there we spent some time with other volunteers on various projects including removing invasive species in the woods and along the trails, and cleaning up a community garden. We also enjoyed a photo exhibit in the art gallery and a rejuvenating walk around a pond filled with wildlife sightings, birds singing, and a glorious sun-filled spring breeze. For anyone interested in nature, we highly recommend checking this place out! https://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/habitat
It was a busy and dynamic day of celebration at WCUC, inside and outside!
On Palm Sunday, our children experienced Jesus’ final week through a variety of multisensory stations and activities. Check out the pictures of our journey!
We offered prayer stations in the sanctuary for all ages and abilities to explore and engage with as they felt moved. Here are some photos from the night.
Sunday School was back in-person and in full swing for the month of March, and we have been BUSY. Gathering together for the season of Lent has been a joy, and our bible explorations and activity responses have been a wonderful mixture of art, sewing, building, decorating and dancing. Check out our pictures for a sneak peek into our experiences for all three weeks of Sunday School!
On Sunday, March 6th, we honored six children with the gift of a special bible from WCUC. It was wonderful to present these gifts in-person during worship! Following the service, the children joined me downstairs for a fun bible scavenger hunt and bookmark crafts. I hope seeing these bible gifts will inspire you to open your bible at home and explore the stories within – read them, learn them, live them, and pass them along!
Nothing can stop the WCUC teens from having fun! Whether it’s tubing on the slopes of Nashoba, baking treats for youth group alums, or playing games together, we know how to conquer the winter doldrums. Play, bake, pray, give, connect, repeat…
