Coffee & Chat for Elementary Parents
January 8, 2023Attention, parents of elementary aged children! Do you love your kids, but could use a few minutes of adult interaction? Do you enjoy drinking coffee or tea while it’s still hot? Do you have opinions about cookies? If so, please join us for our “parents drink coffee while kids are in RE” concept.We will have singing, crafts, and stories for the kids in the RE foyer (the building southwest of the sanctuary), and coffee, tea, and snacks for the adults in the adjoining Memorial Hall. We’re looking forward to seeing you all!Religious Education for Children
Religious Education for Children
January 8, 2023
Our Rainbow Principles curriculum for 2022–23 will begin September 11 and we’ll start with learning about our chalice. The second and third week we’ll learn about covenant and create our own together. Children will have the opportunity to create their own chalice each week in September.
Class starts at 10:00 am. Each 45-minute class will begin with a song led by one of our UU musicians, and then a chalice lighting and check-in: the Roses and Thorns that are our children’s Joys and Concerns. We’ll read a story together and talk about its meaning. Then we play. A variety of activities are available for children to choose from, and volunteer RE leaders and assistants companion the children, talking, playing, and building relationship. We end at 10:45 so that volunteers and families have the time to go to the service together or get settled on our playground.
Each month, we’ll explore how we live another Unitarian Universalist Principle together. In October, we’ll explore the first Rainbow Principle: Respect the worth and dignity of each person. I hope that you will join our community!
