December 2017

In December students join together for some Christmas fun.

December 3: Dan and Kathy Swenson share their artistic talents as we make a variety of Christmas crafts. Parents are encouraged to join us after the service and create with their children since there won’t be a Saturday craft day this year.

December 10 & 17: Carolyn Ferguson shares her knowledge of Christmas carols. Did you know Jingle Bells was written by a Unitarian? We’ll learn all kinds of Christmas carol trivia.

December 24: Everyone is invited to a multi-generational “Christmas Eve in the morning” service. There will be no childcare or Sunday school classes.

December 31: Pajama Day! We say goodbye to 2017 in our pajamas with hot chocolate and new year’s resolutions.

No Parent Night Out (Kid Night In) – December 1
Instead of Parent Night Out, everyone is encouraged to attend the Mayor’s Spirit of the Holidays Lighted Parade. The parade begins at 5:30pm on Poyntz Ave., travels through downtown Manhattan, and ends at City Park. After the parade, gather in Aggieville’s Triangle Park for the annual tree-lighting ceremony.

Interfaith Holiday Party for Youth and Teens – December 10, 3:00-5:00 pm
UU teens (7th-12th grade) and youth leaders have been invited to bake cookies with teens and leaders from the Mennonite church, the Jewish congregation, and First Congregational church. Music, games, food, and fun! Location: 1000 Fremont St. (Mennonite church)


Remember: all children must be registered for the 2017-2018 year and registration forms are available on the RE bulletin board at the end of the hallway as well as online at:
