Religious Education

Children’s RE

Our children are a vital part of our community.  This year you will see a lot of them!  Every Sunday children join us in the sanctuary.  On at least two Sundays a month, woven into the service, is a time for a “Kid’s Conversation” with our minister.

 


 

UU’s Seven Principles are at the core of our UUWC Children’s Ed lesson plans.

UUWC children explore how Unitarian Universalism translates into life choices and everyday actions following UUA’s Faithful Journeys lesson plan. From running their own campaigns and elections, to environmental issues, UU Children build skills to become aware decision makers.

The UUWC Children’s Religious Education Team creates nature based lessons designed to enhance children’s natural wonder with interactive learning that promotes caring and respect for self, others, and the living systems upon which we all depend.

UUWC Children’s Education is based on UU Association of Congregations’ Tapestry of Faith curricula.

Welcome to the lively discussion of our chosen book, “Buddhist Voices in Unitarian Universalism”, a collection of essays characterizing the various aspects of historical and contemporary Humanism.

Sunday at 9:45 – 10:30  Spiritual Realities – Meet in the Social Hall

In September the group will begin “The Souls of Animals” by Gary A. Kowalski. The author shares stories that he believes illustrate various animals’ spiritual characteristics: playfulness; capacity for love; altruism; and awareness of death. Kowalski posits, “If we are to keep our family homestead — Earth — safe for coming generations, we must awaken to a new respect for the family of life”.
