Religious Eduction News – Rebecca Fricke – February 2019

I am excited to announce that we will are holding OWL programs for K-2 and 4-6th graders. OWL is a unique program that invites age-appropriate discussions of sexuality within the context of Justice and Equity, Self Worth, Sexual Health, and Responsibility. The UU OWL activities dovetail with our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles. You can read more about the curriculum here: https://www.uua.org/re/owl. Alyson Bull and Susan Wells will be leading the newly revised 4-6 curriculum (10 sessions), and Lauren Croce and Tom Fricke will be facilitating K-2 (six sessions). It is very important that parents and children commit to being at almost every session.


Jacy Armenti and Anna and Tessa Stanforth are busy with a room full of babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Jacy’s preschool program is essential for helping the children become good UUs. Jacy and the children practice circle time, listening, sharing, caring, and singing. Exactly what the adults practice in worship in larger chairs in the sanctuary!


Please come to our Break Out Service on February 10. We are collecting hygiene products such as travel-sized soap, toothbrushes, etc., to sort as part of our worship through service. See the poster included in this newsletter for full details.


YoUUrs,
Rebecca Fricke
