Kindness Club

Sundays, 11:15 to Noon, June 3 to August 26

CC Water Drop ~ Explored by Sergiu Bacioiu

At every age, we can change the world with our love!

Emerson’s children will spend Summer Sundays in a Kindness Club  – creating ripples of kindness to oneself, to others, to animals, and to the environment.

Each session includes a story and a way to investigate the theme, from games to crafts to experiments.

This offering is geared to ages four to eleven. Younger children may need parental assistance, and we welcome older youth to help with sessions!
