Ultimately, our message is: GOD IS LOVE and all are welcome here!

What is Padlet?
The picture below displays the new platform we will be using to post all online content to accompany and
supplement our in-person lessons for our Children’s Christian Education Program, links to forms and sign-ups, and
possibly more! We keep all your children’s interactive responses to the activities private by only inviting and allowing
students of First Parish Church to view and add their responses to any and all activities. Please e-mail Christine
Once invited via e-mail, you will need to follow a few simple prompts, explained to you in your email, to become a
part of our little Padlet community! The potential is great for relationship, communication, growth, and accessibility
no matter where you are or what type of technology you have. TIP: You can control the frequency of your notifications for Padlet, be sure to click on your settings (little gear wheel).
