May this holiday season be filled with love, rest and fun.
- This December the children in RE will be preparing for the Whole Congregation service on December 17. The service will incorporate ideas and practices they are learning from Lesley Smith’s mindfulness Sundays.
- In the preschool Jacy will talk about families and start to explore the different winter holidays celebrated around the world. Children will create their own family boxes and learn about the families of other children. Jacy has also incorporated mindfulness practice and emotional awareness at circle time.
- By the end of the month of December, our middle school youth will have visited the Catholic Newman Center, The Jewish Community Center and a Baptist church. For every visit to a Neighboring Faith, there is one Sunday where they debrief and attend services at the UUSA.
- Youth Group will be helping out at Stone Soup and our 9th and 10th graders will be finishing up the first half of their OWL program.
If you are interested in getting involved with RE please come and talk to me. We welcome new ideas and new perspectives.
Finally, I want to say how grateful I am to the volunteers who are putting time and energy into making the RE program vibrant.
