This Friday, February 2, we will begin a new study, The Five Love Languages for Children. Love is the foundation to a secure child who grows into a giving, loving adult. Every child has a primary language of love, a way in which he or she understands a parent’s love best. Over the next few weeks, we will help you recognize and speak your child’s primary love language as well as four other common love languages that can help your child know you love him /her. Children need to know they are loved in order to develop into responsible adults.
It may interest you to know that adults resonate with the same five love languages. There is an online assessment to help you determine your personal love language. You can download it as a pdf or take it online. There is a separate version for singles. If interested, try it! http://www.5lovelanguages.com/profile/

We have fabric and the supplies needed for you to make a quilt. No experience necessary. Bring your lunch. We have coffee and tea available all day. Children under the age of 13 should be accompanied by an adult for safety reasons. If Shenendehowa Central Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we are also closed.

SUMC Book Club News ― The book club has chosen their next book, Bathsheba: Reluctant Beauty by Angela Hunt. A Vivid and Moving Portrait of a Reluctant Queen
After sending his army to besiege another king’s capital, King David forces himself on Bathsheba, a loyal soldier’s wife. When her resulting pregnancy forces the king to murder her husband and add her to his harem, Bathsheba struggles to protect her son while dealing with the effects of a dark prophecy and deadly curse on the king’s household.
The book is available on Amazon and there was one copy available in the library system. (You would need to request it. It’s from Cobleskill.)
The date for discussion is Tuesday, March 20. For questions, please ask Becky Nold .
I hope to see you all on Friday, February 2 at 9:00. Remember to look for your shadow!
Grace and peace,
