January 21: Religious Exploration for Children and Youth

Last week, in celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we had an intergenerational worship service.  Mill Creek participants of various generations shared their own personal letters to Martin Luther King. The congregation was deeply moved. We learned. We laughed…and we cried. It was an amazing day at Mill Creek!

This Sunday, our Chalice Children will 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 with their mentors and the Youth Group will consider seeing themselves as social activists and justice makers.

Next week, stay tuned for exploration and fun as the Chalice Children have a luau and learn about the concept of “Ohana,” meaning family.  The Roots and Shoots friends will conclude their “Take Apart Month.” Brian and Jeanne will share a lesson about Judaism with the Coming of Age Class, and the Youth Group will learn about UU Social Activists and ways young people like them are taking action.

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
