February 2: Religious Exploration for Children and Youth

Last Sunday in Religious Exploration: Our Chalice Children had their own Hawaiian luau and learned about the concept of “Ohana,” meaning family.  The Roots and Shoots friends enjoyed the first part of the film, “Dreamer,” inspired by the true story of an injured thoroughbred racehorse and the love of a family.  In preparation for their upcoming their upcoming visit to Temple Beth El, the Coming of Age Class discussed etiquette and customs to remember.

This Sunday, Chalice Children will learn about our shared home of faith.  The Roots and Shoots friends welcome Diane back from her journey to Oregon and California! They will finish enjoying the film, “Dreamer.” Joe Snader will share a lesson about Islam with the Coming of Age class and the Youth Group will talk about romantic love.

Next Sunday:  Our Chalice Children will celebrate Valentine’s day. The Roots and Shoots friends will live our values as UU’s and affirm our 7th shared principle which calls us to affirm and promote “respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” The Coming of Age Class will have a lesson about our basic beliefs as UU’s, and the Youth Group will continue talking about romantic love.

Volunteers are loved and appreciated. If you are interested in volunteering to serve in our vibrant and growing Religious Exploration Program, contact our DRE at dre@uusmc.org.
