January 28: Religious Exploration for Children and Youth

Last week, The Chalice Children learned about the meaning of our chalice and made their own personal stained-glass chalices. The Roots and Shoots friends took apart disc drives.  The Coming of Age class began working with their mentors and the Youth Group talked about practicing integrity and honesty as we live our values.

This Sunday, Chalice Children will have their own Hawaiian luau and learn about the concept of “Ohana,” meaning family.  The Roots and Shoots friends will conclude their “Take Apart Month.” In preparation for their upcoming February 9 visit to Temple Beth El, the Coming of Age Class will discuss etiquette and customs to remember when visiting a Jewish synagogue.

Next Sunday:  Our Chalice Children learn about our shared home of faith. The Roots and Shoots friends will discuss our values as UU’s and 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 has a lesson on Islam, and the Youth Group talks 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.
