Intergenerational

Our special Intergenerational Church School days intentionally take into account the fact that there are learners of different ages and experiences in attendance. The programs seek to teach to the hearts of everyone present.

Intergenerational teaching and learning benefits both adults and children. It provides opportunities for all generations to understand the material differently and benefit from another perspective. It is a unique opportunity for the young to learn from the old, and for the old to learn from the young.

Examples of past Intergenerational programs include: World Communion Bread Making, Advent Wreath Making, Advent Spiral, and Holy Week Walk.

While we would like to strongly encourage participation from people of all ages, United Parish Safe Church Policy requires that children be accompanied by an adult.

Join us this Friday for our United Parish Frozen Friday gathering which will be a painting class led by our own Carolyn M.! The class will begin at 8pm and below is a list of some suggested materials to gather or purchase if you would like to participate in the painting. The art making will be accessible to all ages but if you would rather watch and learn and enjoy some art inspired conversation, we would love to have you. Hope to see you there. Check your weekly email for the Zoom information.
(Materials not provided, but if you need help getting supplies, please contact gathering@upbrookline.org.)
You'll need:
1. brushes;
3. some kind of paint paper such as watercolor paper or Bristol paper (thicker than printer paper);
4. water;
5. a disposable plate or palette paper for the paints;
6. clean-up materials

Friday, January 15 at 6:50pm: AstroNights is a live, family-friendly exploration of your night sky that you can join from the comfort of your home with educators from the Christa McAuliffe Center for Integrated Science Learning at Framingham State University. Educators leave audiences with simple advice for observing your real night sky when the program is over. From the colorful characters in our own solar system to the weird and wonderful things far beyond, each program is sure to contain something of interest to armchair astronomers of all ages. Learn more.

So pop some corn and find your juniorest of mints and join us for a fun evening that will warm your heart, even in the cold of winter.

The Zoom info will be in the weekly newsletter, or contact gathering@upbrookline.org for more information.
