Religious Education

Religious Education is a lifelong learning opportunity. We hold that religious education is a vital and important part of any life journey. Our classes offer children and youth the chance to ask theological questions and to seek answers for themselves.

The aim of our religious education program is to provide opportunities for our children and youth to gain the experience of awe and wonder that leads to an ethical and principled life.

Adult education classes are offered throughout the year and provide an opportunity for connection, intellectual stimulation and spiritual growth.

Children’s R.E. 2014-15

Regular Religious Education (R.E.) classes will be using lessons from the UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association) Tapestry of Faith program. As some of our children are very young, I have selected lessons from “Creating Home,” designed for grades K-1. “Creating Home” will guide children to identify characteristics of a home. The children will talk about their homes and family members; they will learn how different animals receive security and sustenance from their unique homes; they will learn of the rewards of belonging to a Unitarian Universalist home.
Further details about this Tapestry of Faith program can be researched at:  (http://www.uua.org/re/tapestry/children/)

We also are studying Pagan Holidays throughout the year. Most of revolve around the solstices. We also study traditional Christian holidays. I have a background in art so I like to have drawing and craft projects.
