Putting the emphasis on “thanks” in November in preparation for Thanksgiving

We have a lot of cool things available for November. These were highlighted in the regular e-news, but I also want to go over them here as well.

  1. UTO Liturgy Booklet – available for download or through the distribution center – This resource has wonderful liturgies to use during November, particularly around Thanksgiving, to offer prayers of gratitude. 
  2. November gratitude challenge booklet – This resource is great for use in small groups, by individuals, or at church. Each week, a new idea within the theme of care of creation is explored in terms of gratitude.
  3. November faith formation for families – We’ve redesigned the November gratitude materials for children and families so that they can easily be emailed to parents or printed and sent home with supplies. These resources walk parents through how to introduce the materials and offer two different processes as well as a wrap-up lesson.
  4. November faith formation for Sunday School classes – The same materials that can be sent home have also been formatted for use in a Sunday School setting. It even comes with a letter to send home to explain the materials to parents.

Please note: We are also finishing up the materials for Lent; they will be available in October.
