**We don’t meet next week (Apr 10) but we’ll be back on Apr 17 (Easter) with a special CYRE that includes treats and an egg hunt!

Roots (pre-k to 1st) & Seedlings (2nd-5th) Class:
This week we discussed the book Perfect Square, a story of a square that is torn and crumpled and ripped, but always used the pieces to make lovely pictures like fountains and rivers. We talked about ways to handle negative experiences and emotions, how we might help ourselves and others feel better. Most everyone agreed that petting an animal was one of the best ways to feel better. Then we made our own pictures from torn paper. We also sang “Peace like a River” and talked about hymns being the songs you sing at church.

Wildflower Youth (Middle & High School):
Our youth did some pair sharing about people who inspire us and the qualities we see in them. The youth also had fun creating a mock-up of a poster to promote our youth group!
