Young Builder’s Club

Hey kids! What can you imagine? What can you build? The Best Has Yet to Be Done and Finish What You Start. Those are our club mottos. YBC provides a faith-based learning environment for our parish children, where they practice creative thinking, problem solving and life-long social skills. Sessions are held one Saturday per month and all children must be accompanied by an adult, who stays and works with their young builder(s) on a K’nex project of their choice. Instruction books and K’Nex pieces are provided.

All children, ages 3-10+, along with their parents and/or grandparents, are invited to work together to build (and keep) a special K’nex item, display their creation in our Project Parade, and win a Door Prize! Join the fun on Saturday Morning, February 25th at 9:45 AM in the Parish Center Cafeteria.

Adult volunteers are welcome to help us with set-up, check-in and clean-up. Confirmation candidates and scouts are eligible to earn service hours at YBC, but they must register in advance with Debra Kurtz by e-mail or Martha Eckert by telephone at 908-704-6749. Are you a YBC graduate? Come back and help us build cool, coveted door prizes!

The Young Builders’ Club will also meet March 18th and April 22nd. New Families are always welcome! Come whenever you can!!!! Please email Debra at ybcinfo@verizon.net to be added to our mailing list, or for more information about YBC.

Lenten Series – Scripture Reflection

The Adult Faith Formation ministry is offering several opportunities each week during Lent to gather with fellow parishioners to read and reflect upon the upcoming Sunday Gospel. These informal gatherings are a great way to deepen your faith, meet new people, and pray in community.

This is not a Bible Study. No prior experience is needed and there is no homework! We will prayerfully read scripture and listen for the quiet whispers of our Lord.

For this series our motto is “No sign up – just show up!” Come to the session that is best for you each week.

Groups will meet as follows:

 Tuesday evenings at 7:30 pm beginning Feb. 28

Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm beginning March 8

Thursday afternoons at 1:00 pm beginning March 2 (Kid-friendly Session – moms feel free to bring your children)

Friday mornings at 11:00 am beginning March 3

All sessions will be held in Rooms A/B of the Church Basement and will last approximately one hour. Check the bulletin for weekly updates.

For questions or more information, please contact Tracy Liston at tliston@optonline.net or 908-393-4456.
