5 Minute Ted Talks

East Shore Unitarian Church 12700 SE 32nd Street, Bellevue, WA

TED talks have become famous as a way of giving people a chance to share their ideas across a wide platform. In this service, members share their ideas in just 5 minutes each. In addition, Eric Lane Barnes will lead a pop-up choir. If you’ve always wanted to try being in the choir, this is your chance to give it a go. Arrive in the Sanctuary by 9am and we will learn some easy pieces, and then perform them in the service.

OWL Facilitator Training

East Shore Unitarian Church 12700 SE 32nd Street, Bellevue, WA

OWL empowers adults and children across the lifespan to learn about their bodies, sexuality, and genders. I am looking for 15 adults to get trained in OWL to facilitate next year's programs. There are new editions of K-2 curricula and 10-12 curricula, so even if you've trained before, it's time to re-engage. Congregants not signing up for the training are invited to host a meal at the church or to host a participant from the program with a home stay.
