May 13: Religious Exploration for Children and Youth

Here’s what you missed last Sunday…

Ivonne and Jamie joined the Chalice Children as they acknowledged the changes that are happening as they grow. Brushing and losing their teeth, learning to share and self-regulate, learning to color in the lines…Our little ones have truly grown during this RE year!

Jerry joined the Roots and Shoots friends as they welcomed Diane back to Delaware and took some time to plant seeds that will later be transplanted to our meadow.

Our Director of Religious Education and the Coming of Agers met to select the readings, songs and order of the special Coming of Age Worship Celebration to be held June 3. Mark your calendars for this special worship experience!

Lisa led the High School youth in a continuation of the Belief-O-Matic survey and discussion, which uses 20 theological and social questions to pinpoint “what religion (if any) one may share common beliefs.

Here’s What’s Happening this Week…

Unitarian minister Norbert Capek, creator of the Flower Communion.

Chalice Children will create and share their own flowers in celebration of Flower Communion Sunday.  Flower Communion is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. It was created in 1923 by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia.

The Roots and Shoots friends will continue planning and learning about our meadow.  The Coming of Agers will meet with their mentors and High School Youth view a TED talk and engage in discussion.

Mill Creek RE Volunteers are special, loved and appreciated.  If you are interested in volunteering to serve in our welcoming Religious Exploration Program, contact our DRE at dre@uusmc.org.  There’s a place for you in our circle of safety, love and learning.

​Check us out!!! You’d be surprised to see all of the meaningful activity and learning that occurs during the RE hour!
