October 8, 2022 Second Sunday Celebration

Second Sunday Celebration

Intergenerational Activity

in person only on October 9 at 10 a.m.

—an all ages Sunday school and fellowship hour

Each month includes refreshments and activities on a theme for many ages to share together. The hour begins with a brief Introduction to the theme of the day, maybe a 3-minute video, or listening to a poem,  or reading a story or scripture. Then participants move as they wish between three or four activity stations set up around the room.  Here are some examples of what might happen at a Second Sunday Celebration:

* make and share a beaded friendship bracelet
* have a cup of coffee or juice
* discuss the day’s theme with someone at  your table
* help a child with an activity
* fill a toiletry kit for distribution to new immigrants bused into DC
* munch on a muffin or a piece of fruit
* write names on paper leaves and hang on a prayer tree
* be surprised
* glue fabric pieces on a welcome banner
* feel welcomed
* contemplate on the day’s theme while coloring pictures of stained glass windows
* write note cards to friends
* enjoy warm fellowship
* decorate & fill gift bags or bake muffins to give to unhoused neighbors at our upcoming Pop-up Breakfast Cafe

All ages–small children, teens, adults, & seniors–share mindful tasks together to build community, find enrichment, and enjoy each other.
