2013-2014 Religious Education Program for Children and Youth
Sunday Morning Activities:
Nursery - Preschool (up to age 5-6): Nurturing care and creative play are our curriculum for our youngest.
Kindergarten - 4th Grade Class: We have a nature-centered curriculum this year, Adventures with the Web of Life. We will explore nature as a source of wonder, mystery and environmental values. Each week's topic is listed in the newsletter and on Facebook.
Middle School Class (Grades 5-8): Community building is our primary focus. Windows and Mirrors develops a deeper awareness of self and others and appreciation for diversity. How Can I Know What to Believe? explores beliefs about the Bible, God, death and Unitarian Universalism. Gods & Goddesses looks at our principles through Greek mythology; other world myths will also be explored. We have occasional get-togethers outside of class, including an end-of-year field trip.
YUUth (Grades 9-12): Youth plan their year in cooperation with our Youth Advisors. Check the newsletter, Facebook and e-mail for upcoming meetings and activities. The year will start off with a Cemetery Walk on October 19, led by a Youth Advisor and the minister.
Chapel: About once a month, the K-4th grade class will have a brief worship of their own followed by a group activity, instead of a class. This will usually be on the 4th Sunday of the month. A few times this year the Chapel will be for all ages from K-12.
