Religious Education & Youth Special Events


Sun Feb 01 @10:00AM - 10:30AM
Children's Choir Practice
Children ages 5-18 are welcome to join our Children's Choir.

The heart of a children's choir is in the community building and skill development that occurs. Choral singing builds self-confidence, memory skills, social development, and emotional expression. Music is fun, first! It is about enjoying the experience of singing.

Children's choir meets approximately twice a month in the Sanctuary and is directed by Kallin Johnson.

Sun Feb 01 @10:30AM -
Regular Religious Ed Class
Children go directly to their classrooms and return to the sanctuary for communion.

Beginner Group -> LOVE IS ETERNAL. This session of Love Will Guide Us focuses on
the sixth UU Source, "the harmony of nature and the sacred circle of life". This session connects love with the age-old human question "What happens when we die?" The children will explore ways people stay with us through our memories and their loving acts. They will create memory flowers to honor those who they loved and lost. This subject will be approached carefully and with great sensitivity.
Teacher: Susan Berkowitz

Primary Group -> THE POWER OF ACTION. In this session of Sing to the Power,
participants learn about Bill McKibben and how he founded 350.org to combat climate change. Participants will think creatively about how they might change their own habits and those of their friends to slow climate change which threatens the world's ecosystems.
Teacher: Joan Ogden

Youth Group -> Youth Group -> CHRISTIANITY 1. In WKSP #11 of Building Bridges, Christianity is introduced. It is important to help UU Youth understand the complexities and challenges of Christianity. Some of the challenges of this learning experience may include: the tendency to lump all Christians together, to think if you know a person's religion you know what they believe, the feelings of being miss understood by evangelical and fundamentalist, and finally the ability to bring an open mind and open heart to this journey. The Youth will discuss Jesus of Nazareth, scripture, and core Christian beliefs.
Teacher: Perley Mears

Nursery -> Alina
