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.

Lenten Dinner Church is returning this year! Join us for a contemplative, candlelit service over a shared meal each Thursday from March 14 through April 11 from 6:15-7:00pm in the Parlor. Doors open at 6pm. Dinner church is a post-modern return to an ancient worship model that has been sweeping the country- just like what the early Christians did in their own homes. We’ll enjoy soup, salad, communion, some prayer, confession and music. For more information, contact Seminarian Wilson Hood at firstname.lastname@example.org or Associate Pastor Amy Norton at email@example.com.
**Volunteers needed for Lenten Dinner Church. If you’re able to bring soup or salad, help with setup and/or cleanup, or share a confession, click here to learn more.
We are gathering as a spiritual community to prepare ourselves for Lent on Saturday, March 2, 9:30-11:30am in the Parlor and Willett Hall. This will be a "come as you are" time to walk the labyrinth, take time for silent meditation, learn some Celtic prayer traditions, and share quiet prayer time with those you know and new friends. Pilgrims of all ages are welcome! Questions? Contact the Church Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Create a display of Christmas decorations, artificial candles, reflective objects, crèche pieces, greenery etc. on one (or two) of the 33 window sills in the sanctuary. You may choose to dedicate your window to someone special, or use your window to lift up a prayer of concern or joy. You may choose to represent a particular Advent theme (peace, hope, joy, love). You may even choose to include objects to represent other world religions. The creative part is entirely up to you! It can be a very simple display, or elaborate and ornate.
