Current Month Services

Religious Education - Children & Youth Programs

Pre-K - 5th grade and 5th - 8th grade programs are offered on Sunday mornings.  Nursery childcare is also provided for infants through age four.

Parents of children in grade 5 will have the option of choosing a program that is the best match for their fifth-grader.  Due to our Safe Congregation policy, each classroom will have two adults working with the children and youth at all times.

We will also be hosting RE Children & Youth brainstorming sessions in January (every Sunday during the coffee hour), and your suggestions are welcomed and encouraged!  If you are interested in this effort, please contact Jolynn Paige for more information.

Sunday, January 6 - Hal Gurian, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “What Are Our Intentions?”
Most of us have heard the expression, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions!”
Hearing it as a child, we may have wondered what it meant, but now as an adult, we understand it clearly.  We may think that if our intentions are good, that should be worth something.  There is one major challenge with that concept - no one can see our intentions.  The only thing that can actually be seen is our behavior.  Let’s think about it!

 

Sunday, January 13 - Donna Stein-Harris, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Being Intentional About Being Intentional”
Being intentional means that you are purposeful and strive to live a life that is meaningful and fulfilling to you.  You make thoughtful choices and actively interact and engage with your life.  Join us as we explore what it means to be an intentional Unitarian Universalist.

 

Sunday, January 20 - Amanda Mangiardi, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Our Seven Principles”
Rev. Jane Lippert leads our service.  It’s a fresh year and the ink is still wet on our resolutions.  The new year comes with non-negotiables:  our age will change; our body will change; however, the core of this community will not change.  Our UU principles bind us together, providing deep roots and our unified vision.

 

Sunday, January 27 - Andi Kramer, Coordinator
10:30 Service:  “Our Seventh Principle - Respect for the interdependent web of all existence”

"Our seventh Principle may be our Unitarian Universalist way of coming to fully embrace something greater than ourselves.  The interdependent web - expressed as the spirit of life, the ground of all being, the oneness of all existence, the community-forming power, the process of life, the creative force, even God - can help us develop that social understanding of ourselves that we and our culture so desperately need.  It is a source of meaning to which we can dedicate our lives."  Rev. Forrest Gilmore
Join us in an exploration of the common threads weaving through all of life.
