Faith Formation News – 1/13/23

Dear SUUS Families,

Please join us this Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Sunday, January 15 at 10:30am for a Multigenerational Worship Service where we will share a story of the courageous children who marched in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963. ALL are welcome to join together in the Sanctuary on Sunday. There will be activity boxes for the children.

A special thanks to Kathy Helmrich and Karis Lagasse for joining our Faith Formation Exploration last Sunday. It was good to be together as we journeyed to “Find Our Center” through releasing thoughts and ideas of the past and making promises towards the future.

“Let the children march. They will lead the way.” – MLK

See you at church!
