Summer Religious Education
Our RE summer program for children begins on June 16. It is different than during the church year in that kids from kindergarteners to teens participate in activities together. The nursery is available for younger children.
We will be reading stories, playing games, and making crafts which relate to our 7th UU principle: we care for our Mother Earth. This will include plenty of outdoor time, so kids should dress appropriately for nature hikes—please avoid flip flops and dress clothes.
Please contact Mary Kate Webster if you would be willing to assist her with any Sundays this summer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking Ahead: RE Curriculum Sept. 2019 – June 2020
- K – 6th graders – We Believe: Learning and Living our UU Principles
- 7-8th Grades – Our Whole Lives (OWL) Sexuality Education
- 8-9th Grades – Coming of Age (Newly revised and updated)
- 11-12th Grades – H.S. OWL and Living in UUville
People’s Playground Party
June 9th, 9:30 –10:30 AM
Want a place for your kids to romp around before a Sunday service? Look no further than our own backyard! Join us at the People’s Church playground for playtime, good conversation, community building, and snacks on June 9. Muffins and juice will be provided; all you need to bring is the fun. Weather permitting; please check the church Facebook page on that Sunday morning if the weather looks iffy.
Thank you RE Committee Members
Our Religious Education Committee members serve 3-year terms and help guide the direction and focus of the RE program. They manage many aspects of the program from large events to small details. Because of their commitment and dedication, we have outstanding monthly Specialty Classes, Elementary Sleepovers, great meals for RE programs and events, childcare arrangements for all church events, RE Greeters as well as behind the scenes tasks that keep the program running smoothly – from RE teacher support and program evaluations to volunteer appreciation and the adult ed brochure.
We offer them much gratitude for the time and energy they devote to serving our congregation by supporting our Religious Education program.
Huge Thanks to Chris Semelbauer, Michelle Weemhoff, Bobby Goldstein, Betsy Johnson, Amy Marr, Elizabeth Huff Willis, Jessica Garner, Wendy Murray, Mary Kate Webster, Chairperson and Nicky Gates, RE Program Assistant
RE Volunteer Appreciation Reception
Everyone is invited to stay after church to enjoy punch and cookies and offer gratitude to our RE volunteers. We are so grateful they are willing to serve our congregation by ministering to the youngest among us!
