Stewards of Children/Safe Church Training

As you know we are ever-mindful about the changing needs and hopes of families with young and growing children in our midst. One way that we have committed to increase our capacity for ministry, continuing to offer dynamic programming for the youngest among us, is through expanding our childcare services on Sunday mornings to include care during the 9:00am Taize service, for programming offered from 9:30-10:30, and during our 10:30 worship service. Each Sunday, beginning Jan. 29 childcare will be offered from 9:00am-12:00pm for children through 4 years of age.

In addition to expanding the ministry through additional childcare we will be hosting a Safe Church Training sponsored by the Religious Education Committee on Sunday, Feb. 5, 12:00pm - 2:00pm.  The Stewards of Children Training will be facilitated by our community partner, YMCA of the Triangle. This training is nationally recognized and has been used by organizations all over the state including non-profits, the education system, as well as professional corporations. We hope you will join us as a partner in expanding our care to families with children; whether you are interested in volunteering yourself or are a parent or grandparent of a child participant or a member or friend who is interested in learning more about this program, please join us for lunch at Noon to learn how to be "Stewards of Children" at CUCC.  Please register no later than Thursday, Feb. 2 by calling or emailing the CUCC office at 919-809-8850 or
