“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” (1 Corinthians 12:4-6)
The UCOG Children’s Program is happening! And here’s how…
On Saturday, June 1st a small group of UCOG members gathered together in the Public Library. We chatted and connected and generally had a great time, and the UCOG Children’s program was born! This special group includes Alice Cooper, Brenda Ford, Claudia Robinson, Claudine Plamondon, Donna Sue Weaver, Eugenia Koog, Harriette (Mimi) Spires, Jaqueline Syers, and Trish Phelps.
We were trained by Donna Sue to be Teachers / Helpers using a Unity curriculum for children. We established a schedule of volunteers to cover every Sunday through August! We incorporated the logistics of getting the children to and from the classroom into the service. We each gave of our God-given talents and, together, are allowing Spirit to manifest this wonderful new adventure at Unity Church of Georgetown.
The Unity curriculum called All Together Now, is a multi-age program for a one-room Sunday School to guide small groups in exploring Unity’s core beliefs. It is a format for wide age-range of children to explore spiritual ideas together. It incorporates fun and memorable activities involving the entire group. It is user-friendly and easy to prep – anyone can do it because it’s as easy as following a recipe!
Two adults are required each week, per Unity standards and best practice, so we need more volunteers. Volunteering with the children requires a background check, so please, if you have any notion of pitching in (even just once a year!) complete a background check form (located on the back table) and turn in to Donna Sue Weaver or Mimi Spires.
A new Teacher / Helper training is scheduled at Unity Church of the Hills on Saturday, August 24th. Several of the UCOG Children’s Program volunteers are going and we would love to have a few more new teachers join us. We will also be completing the fall volunteer schedule in August so if you have any thoughts of jumping in, please do it now!
