ABOUT OUR RE CLASSES:

We seek an outcome of respectful, responsible, life-loving kids who know they are valued for all of who they are and are ready to show others the same deep acceptance. Our classes guide your children through the principles and values of the Unitarian Universalist faith. We learn our 7 Principles, we build covenants, we explore spirituality and learn the history of our faith. Our classes are rooted in sound child development practices and faith building experiences. We strive to offer activities that are age appropriate and encompass many different learning styles. Click here to see our 2018-19 schedule of classes. Register for classes here.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

On Sundays, Children in the 3 year old and 4 year old classrooms should be brought directly to their classrooms in Peace Hall at 11am. Families of children from Kindergarten through Middle School should gather in the sanctuary for the beginning of the service. Children experience elements of the worship service, listen to the “Story for All Ages,” and are then sung out by the congregation. Children will follow marked banners and be led to their classes by their teachers. Although children are always welcome to attend all worship services, special Intergenerational services are held throughout the year.  No Sunday School will be held on those days.

 

BABIES AND TODDLERS:

Families with younger children are welcome to use the Fellowship’s Wiggle Room located at the back of the Sanctuary, the Play Church area at the front of the sanctuary, or to sit together in the Sanctuary during our Sunday morning worship service.

Alternatively, free child care for infants and toddlers (up through age two) is available by experienced child care assistants and a volunteer team of Fellowship members in the Nursery Room (located on the lower level of Fellowship Hall) during services.

 

PARENT VOLUNTEERS:

All parents with children registered in the UUFR RE program are strongly encouraged to volunteer in some capacity. We have many opportunities inside or outside of the classroom. It takes a village to have a strong, engaging program and we ask that you consider volunteering a minimum of two times during the school year. Non-parents and all members of the congregation are also welcome to volunteer within our Religious Exploration program and share your unique gifts.

 

REGISTERING FOR CLASSES:

All returning families need to register each child, every year. New families are welcome to join RE classes as guests three times before officially registering for classes. Exceptions include the OWL (Our Whole Lives) and COA (Coming Of Age) programs which require special registration, regular attendance and a mandatory parent orientation.
