Superheroes Parent News for February 5, 2017
Children’s Chapel this week, February 12th, is based on our fourth source of Unitarian Universalism: Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God’s love by loving our neighbors as ourselves, or in child-friendly language: Christian and Jewish teachings which tell us to love all others as we love ourselves.
As part of our lesson, we will be making Valentine’s Day cards to take to Vantage House, a retirement community in Columbia. We will be teaching the children some easy songs that retired folks will enjoy, and taking the Valentines and music to Vantage house at 12:30 to share some love with local elders. We would love you to join us at this event!

We have been informed that Vantage House would prefer we not bring snacks due to multiple dietary restrictions.
We are welcoming children who would love to perform instead of sing with the group. Please let us know if your child would like to perform, no longer than 2-3 minutes, please.
Make sure to read to the bottom for important news and events!
Yours in faith,
