Religious Education (RE) for Children
Everything we do is Faith Formation. Everything we teach is Unitarian Universalism. The Congregation is the Curriculum. ~ Connie Goodbread
All children and youth must be registered for Religious Education in order to participate. Please CLICK HERE to register.
Parents/Guardians are asked to register their children so that our Director of Religious Education has current contact and other important information for all of our families. You may register here: https://uufws.breezechms.com/form/06bba7
Sometimes parents prefer for their children to attend worship along with them. Sometimes youth prefer to attend worship rather than participate in the youth class.
Sometimes parents or youth sing in the choir, serve as ushers or worship leaders, or fill another volunteer role. We support the different ways in which you or your youth choose to participate at the Fellowship on Sunday mornings. Please talk with Membership Manager, Caron Armstrong or Director of Religious Education, Pam Lepley, if you would like to discuss volunteer roles or program offerings.
Families may find the following information helpful as you prepare for worship or youth consider the options for participating on Sunday mornings.
Ages: Infants through 4 years old
Children under the age of five will meet in the Murray Room with nursery staff Amelia and/or Katherine. Drop off begins at 10:15 am* and children should be picked up no later than noon. Nursery Staff have been vaccinated for Covid. Masks are optional at the Fellowship at this time.
Please dress children in weather appropriate play clothes and send necessary supplies such as diapers and a bottle or sippy cup. While the nursery age children will primarily be cared for indoors, staff may opt to go outside if weather permits.
*Parents who have a volunteer role requiring their presence in the Fellowship or those participating in Adult Faith Formation programs such as the Forum or YoUUngish meetings may drop off their children as early as 9:00 am provided that nursery staff are available and ready.
Religious Education Multi-Age Summer Program
The UU Youth Team is planning a multi-age summer program focused on play, community building, games, and fun. Children from kindergarten through high school are invited to participate. Younger children will be supported to participate fully and youth will have the opportunity to grow into leadership roles. Children and youth should dress comfortably, wear sunscreen, and be prepared to get dirty and/or wet.
Reach out to the UU Youth Team leaders at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer to lead an activity or join in the fun.
