Enter, Rejoice, and Come In

A Religious Education message from Gina

Dear Friends,

What a wonderful year we’ve had in Religious Education. During the months of July and August the RE program shifts to summer mode. The theme of our summer RE program, “Sunday Fun-days”, is simple: fun and community. The summer provides an excellent opportunity for children to be with their UUS:E friends, deepening their connections with one another and having fun together.

Each Sunday morning throughout the summer will feature a different activity, many of which are planned and facilitated by members of the RE Committee and other volunteers. The Sunday Fun-days program is designed for children entering kindergarten and up. Nursery care will be provided for children 4 and under. Middle and high school youth will have the option of participating in the planned summer activities—the younger kids absolutely love when the “big kids” play, too. They may also choose to assist in the nursery or attend the worship service. If you are willing to volunteer over the summer, in the nursery or with the planned activities, it would be greatly appreciated. Even just one Sunday would be a big help! Talk to me or our RE Assistant, Reta Soderholm, to sign up.

Below is the schedule of Sunday Fun-days activities.

  • June 26……. Outdoor games (11 AM)
  • July 3………. No RE
  • July 10…….. Theatre games
  • July 17…….. Weather workshop
  • July 24…….. Magical fairy gardens
  • July 31…….. Pictionary and other games
  • August 7…… Tee-shirt decorating (Bring a tee-shirt!)
  • August 14…. Sacred dance
  • August 21…. Natural history activity
  • August 28…. Art extravaganza

Please remember that during the months of July and August UUS:E holds just one service at 10 AM.

Wishing you a great month!

Gina Campellone, Director of Religious EducationBe well and be loved,
