Faith Formation News – 12/16/21

Scott, Jennifer & V at What’s Cookin? – Faith’s Annual Toy Drive drop-off site!

Dear SUUS Families,

Last weekend was AWESOME!

Thank you to all who contributed to the TOY DRIVE! SUUS collected 64 toys, which helped Faith reach a grand total of 5,215, and is recorded as the largest toy donation in the history of Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital! WOOHOO! A special thanks goes to Jennifer and Scott Swenson for delivering everything to “What’s Cookin?” last Saturday. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If you missed last Sunday’s service check out the SUUS website for the recording! We boogied down with Gerald the Giraffe and shared our JOY through music & dance! It was epic!

We also celebrated with a JOYFUL gathering around the fire pit to sing Christmas carols led by Steve Ernst on the melodica. Thank you to all who participated, helped organize and to Steve for sharing his JOYFUL gift of music with us!

THIS SUNDAY at 10:30am is the CHRISTMAS PAGEANT! LIVE from the garden at SUUS, Faith Formation Families and Folx from the Choir bring you JOY through music, drama and a whole lot of laughter! Come and celebrate together! There will be a special coffee hour with s’mores around the fire pit following the Pageant. WOOHOO! Grab your ugly Christmas sweater or Santa hat and come be part of the show! ALL are welcome!
