CHILDREN’S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 10!
Hello Fellow UU Friends!
I am very excited to share with you some info on our upcoming RE Classes this fall!
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 10 – RE ROCKS!
We will be kicking off our first day (September 10th) by participating in a local movement called Crawford County Rocks! The whole congregation is encouraged to participate, whether that be by bringing in rocks to paint or bringing in your children to paint the rocks. Adults: Fret no more! You will also be encouraged to get creative during coffee hour to decorate a rock or two as well! We will let the rocks dry and during the next RE Class we will take the kids out for a walk in Diamond Park to ‘hide’ the rocks wherever the children see fit.
BEGINNING SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 – WINDOWS AND MIRRORS
The RE team has been collaborating on various ideas for our fall curriculum and we are excited to engage the children in the program, “Windows and Mirrors.” This curriculum focuses on looking into our own selves, searching for and finding meaning in our own individual values, as well as, finding out how to utilize our unique gifts to help our friends, family, congregation, and community.
We look forward to getting the kids involved in bigger projects by connecting them to other community organizations to show them what the world around them has to offer, and what they, as individuals in our congregation, have to offer the world.
Please register each child using this downloadable registration form.
If you would like to get involved as an adult helper for the RE Classes or family-friendly activities and events, please check the boxes on the RE registration form or contact either myself or RE Chair, Jane Anderson. Check back in every month to hear about the wonders of RE!
Thanks again for welcoming me into your wonderful community. I am looking forward to working with all of you! -Kristina Brink, Coordinator of Religious Education
