Fall 2016 Sunday School

Sunday School has begun!  We are excited to get started with our programming! Ann  and I will be teaching Sunday school during the fall, and Tanyia and I will be leading the pageant again starting in November.

We will meet roughly every other week until pageant practices begin (see below for dates). Each week, we will meet downstairs in the big room of the basement, with drop-off between9:25-9:35. Parents will be asked to sign their child in and provide a cell phone number where they can be reached during Sunday school time. (If parents cannot drop off, another adult will need to sign the child in and be available by phone during Sunday school time.) We will have a snack, do a large group song, activity and prayer, then split into two groups for another activity. We are looking for two adult volunteers (you don’t have to be a parent!!) from9:15-9:50 each week to help set up, sign kids in, and supervise the snack/activity time as kids come in; look for the Sign Up Genius invite in a separate email!

The Sunday School schedule for the fall is as follows:

Sept 18

Sept 25

Oct 9

No Sunday School:  Oct 16 and  23

October 30

Nov 6

November 13, 20, 27

December 4, 11, 18 (December 18 is Pageant Sunday)

Pageant practice will begin Nov 13. At that point, we will meet weekly until the pageant performance on Dec. 18. We are hoping to have as many kids as possible at each meeting so we can do some activities and themes that overlap from week to week, so please put these dates on your calendar and plan on coming!

Feel free to email us with any questions. We are looking forward to seeing your kids’ sweet faces and getting to know them even better! Here’s to a great year of Sunday school at BMPC!

Thanks,

Lindsey and Ann

What’s Happening at Bryn Mawr

Events at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian

Friendship Sunday is coming, September 18, We will add an intergenerational scavenger hunt with fun and prizes this year.  Come with your smart phones and plan to explore!

Immediately after service we will have a picnic on the front lawn. Deacons will provide drinks, brats, hamburgers, and veggie burgers.  You are encouraged to bring a dish to share.

All are welcome. Come and meet the members and friends of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian.

Sunday School will begin that day for the season

 

Adult Education begins September 11 with discussion of Ta-Nehisi Coate’s book Between the World and Me.  The first 20 to 30 pages will be discussed on  9/11 with 25 new pages discussed each Sunday after. Books can be picked up Sunday, 9/4 at $12 each.

Ta-Nehisi Coates offers us a framework to understand America’s building an empire based on a false premise of race that negatively impacts black women and men. He explains what it is like to inhabit a black body. He addresses how we can reckon with this fraught history from slavery, segregation and today the threat of lockup and murder in a letter to his son. His book illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a vision for a way forward.

Co-Housing presentation. Many people speak of feeling disconnected, lonely, or socially isolated.  There is a lifestyle that lessens that:  cohousing, a way to live in which each family (including singles) has the privacy of their own home but shares a common space with pedestrian streets replacing auto traffic.  Twin Cites Cohousing Network is bringing in the movement’s foremost speaker – architect, Chuck Durrett for a local event on September 15 (7-9:00 pm.) Visit tccoho.org and click on the events tab to register.  Limited seating.  See Brian for more info.

 

What’s next? Talking about retirement will collaborate to learn more about the following topics. Participants are asked to bring an experience, article, or question to share. All meetings will be held at 7 p.m.

Helping aging parents and disabled family members: Tues., Sept. 27

Traveling with more time than money: Tues., Oct. 25

Celebrating holidays in changing times: Tues., Nov. 29

All are welcome who are retired, thinking about retirement, or just interested in discussing these topics.
