6th & 7th Grade: Echo the Story

October 11, 2018

We are gearing up for an exciting year at church for all ages, and wanted to invite you to be a part of a Sunday morning class for sixth and seventh graders called Echo the Story.

Sometimes it is easy for us to forget that the bible was not originally a single book, but it has been with us through the ages as different writings and stories: stories shared and cared for by our ancestors as they wondered about and celebrated God in their lives. They told stories about people who were very real to them: stories about people named Abraham and Sarah, Mary, David, and lots and lots of stories about Jesus… all to help them share where they saw God in their lives, and in the world.

Echo the Story will help us prepare for the confirmation program next church year (which we hope you will be a part of!) grounding us in the big picture and themes of our bible’s story, so we can explore those even more deeply as we worship, serve, learn, and connect to the life of First Parish and the life of the church around the world.

We want to explore telling those stories out loud, listening to them together, and responding to them with our imaginations in art, writing, and in our conversations together. We hope that you’ll join us!
