Enter, Rejoice, and Come In

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who was involved in our 2017-2018 Religious Education program. Children, parents, and volunteers, please know how very much you are appreciated and how blessed I feel to work with all of you. Your presence in this beloved community enriches my life every single day.

During the months of July and August, UUS:E shifts to summer mode, offering just one service at 10 AM. RE programming is held concurrently. The theme of our summer RE program 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. It’s also a great way for children and adult volunteers to interact and learn from one another.

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 summer 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 available to volunteer one Sunday this summer, that would be great! Talk to me or our RE Assistant, Emmy Galbraith, to sign up.

Below is the schedule of Summer Sunday activities:

  • Jun 24 – Outdoor Games (11 AM)
