While we progress into a hybrid of virtual and in-person outdoor RE events this fall, we remain spiritually connected through our series of fun and soul-nourishing programs for children, youth, and adults. Newcomers are welcome to learn more and to register for our Religious Education programs.

All are welcome to join Lifespan Religious Education (RE) Coordinator, Carson Jones, and RE Music Specialist, George Weisman, when they lead the live, interactive Children’s Worship for All Ages.

This year’s Religious Education theme is JUSTICE. In December, we will learn about the true story of a town that came together in solidarity with a Jewish family to take a stand against anti-semitism.

We look forward to this year together of living our 2nd Unitarian Universalist Principle of Justice, Equity, and Compassion.

New Year, New RE Schedule!
Online RE Classes resume Sunday, January 10, 2021
For Children and Youth from pre-school through high school, we offer a full range of fun, interactive, and spiritually nourishing Religious Education Classes and Family Worship live on Zoom.

Through the winter months, Butterflies (ages 3 and 4) through Grade 7 will continue to meet on Zoom every other week, while the Coming of Age and Senior Seminar classes will gather online most every Sunday, all at 11:00 AM.

On alternating Sundays, Children's Worship moves back to 11:05 AM where we will continue to explore this year's RE theme of JUSTICE. This new format will create the opportunity for expanding on the social justice lessons we're covering in RE classes. As always, all family members are welcome! Some of the justice themes we will engage with over the next few months are segregation, gender expression, disability justice, immigration, and worker's rights.

Family Yoga and Young People's Choir rehearsals continue every Sunday at 10:00am when we start back up again on January 10, 2021, and also keep an eye out for other special events!
