Mystery Pals begins February 16th

Mystery Pals is a multi-Sunday event in which children and youth are anonymously (it’s a Mystery!) paired up with an older person (a youth or adult). Pairings are based on shared interests, and participants learn who their Mystery Pals are only on the final Sunday.

Sing up here!

January's Theme is Integrity

Big picture

This month the theme is “Integrity”. This means the qualities of being Honest, and Dependable, and Whole. For children, it is understood as matching what you do to what you say and to your ideas, and keeping your promises.

We will be tying in Confucius’s Golden Rule and Buddha’s Right Actions as we teach to this theme in class this month. You can connect the theme at home, read more
