Religious Education: Growing Your Spirit
Religious education for children and youth is a time for wonder and community. We value all people, so we listen to each other and offer support. We value many religious expressions, so we learn the stories and celebrations of Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims and others. We value the earth, so we work in our garden. We value justice, so we get involved in sharing food with those in need. With mentors we learn yoga, plant trees, build birdhouses and talk about our beliefs and our hopes.
Children do projects, talk and tell stories together. Infants and toddlers are cared for in the nursery by nurturing paid staff. Dress is casual and visitors are always welcome.
We're always looking for interested parents and other members who are interested in sharing their interests and talents with our children's program as a special event or on a continuing basis as a teacher. If you are interested, please join us at our next RE committee meeting. Meetings held monthly on Sundays at noon, check the calendar to find dates.

Summer 2014 Youth Curricula
- Our Nursery is for children from birth to age four and is available starting at 10:15 am. This room has no set curriculum as the children are allowed to
explore and play in a safe and supportive environment.
- Summer All-Ages Curriculum UU Hogwarts Activities start at 10:30am. Children go directly to their class during the summer, there is not a Story for All Ages except for Intergenerational Service Sundays (when there is nursery care, but no classes).

included: Unitarian Universalist History, Becoming a Welcoming Congregation, Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, What Does the Bible Really Say and many others. Childcare
