January 14: Religious Exploration

Last week during the Religious Exploration Hour, the Chalice Children welcomed the New Year with cool crafts and winter slime! The Roots and Shoots friends began putting their predictions in a Time Capsule. They will continue adding items to the time capsule throughout the month. Children may wish to bring items like a newspaper, a sample of a favorite product, a picture of a popular toy, a popular headline from 2017 or, a ticket stub from a favorite movie, etc. The Coming of Age Class engaged in a lesson about Buddhism and the Youth Group in explored solutions to challenges they sometimes face in articulating our UU faith to their peers.

This Week, in celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are having an intergenerational worship Service.

Next Week, stay tuned for exploration and fun as the Chalice Children create their own hanging mobiles displaying our shared UU Principles. The Roots and Shoots friends will continue their Time Capsule project and enjoy part 2 of “Take Apart Month.” The Coming of Age Class will begin their Credo writing exercise and the Youth Group will consider seeing themselves as social activists or justice makers.
