Faith Formation News – 3/24/22

Dear SUUS Families,

Signs of SPRING are all around us and the feeling of renewal is in the air. Birds are chirping, shoots of green are popping out from the Earth and the sun is lingering a bit longer in the evening as we enjoy the delights of nature.

Please join us this Sunday, March 27 at 10:30am at SUUS as we wrap up our month long exploration of “Renewing Faith.” Come and explore together as we renew our trust in life’s goodness and simple gifts!

Please bring a mask and an item or two for PACK A PURSE! See you then!


Faith Formation Happenings

Sunday, March 27 at 10:30am – Multi-Platform Worship with Rev. Terry, Amy & Nick
“Falling in with the Stars” –Religion’s job is to help us make sense of the things we cannot control. Its tools are Faith and Daring. Let’s play in the toolshed.

IN-PERSON Option 1:
FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN ATTENDING FAITH FORMATION DO NOT NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION! Faith Formation will be held in the Fellowship Hall during Multi-Platform Worship. Families will meet at 10:30am in the Fellowship Hall. There, the service will be live streamed and a parent or caregiver will need to stay with children until Amy comes down for class. At this point, parents/caregivers are welcome to stay in the Fellowship Hall OR watch the service from the foyer, living room or in the sanctuary if seating is available.

IN-PERSON Option 2:
You can sign up to reserve seats in the sanctuary for yourself and a partner by clicking HERE! Chairs in the Sanctuary have been reduced to 24, you may move your chair to sit closer to family members or others within your “bubble.”
