At our special All-Church-Conference held after worship on Sunday, December 19th the Trustees of our congregation made the motion to enter a partnership with the YMCA of Cape Cod to host an early childhood education center in our Sunday school classroom space. After a discussion was held, and vote taken it was overwhelmingly supported to have a program begin in our space in 2022. Up to 20 children from our community will be able to get a good start to their education, by attending this program. More information will follow as to the opening date, but first, some work needs to be done to the second-floor area, like putting in a new bathroom, lighting, and so forth, for which the YMCA will be paying. After the work is completed, then the children will start to come. Once the site opens, it will be exciting to explore ways we can continue to support children and families in our community, and perhaps develop some new ministries through this partnership. Congratulations SYUMC for being supportive of this outreach opportunity, and for embracing the spirit of service to our local community that has been part of our congregation’s history for generations.
