Kids at Church
Greetings! Welcome to the children's religious education program at the Kitsap Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. For Unitarian Universalists, religion is a life-long process. Our program encourages our children to ask questions and to make their own decisions on moral, ethical, and religious questions.
Circle of Trees
On September 13, we kicked off an innovative new Religious Education program at 9:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings. It’s a new curriculum offered through the UUA’s tapestry of Faith program called the Circle of Trees. http://www.uua.org/re/tapestry/multigenerational/trees
We are going to hold classes outside under the trees!
This is a program which can involve people of all ages. It will be the first program as we explore transitioning to 9:15 a.m. RE classes, and for the months of September and October, adults are invited to attend as well.
During this time, parents may attend the new Meditation class, drink coffee or maybe participate in the Chalice Circle which is forming!
We will be continuing with 9:15 a.m. RE classes through the end of this year, and will assess if it is something we want to continue.
Families attending church will still be able to send children to child care (rather than RE class) after the “Worship for All Ages” part of our service. We are happy to include children in the service for as long as they like to stay, but we will continue with the traditional “singing them out” after the service. Our Joys and Sorrows will happen before we sing them out so that we can all participate in this important community sharing together. The youngest children will begin in childcare as usual, rather than being sung out with the older kids.
We will be contacting families who registered for RE last September, to make sure everyone is aware of the exciting changes coming up.
We need volunteers to help in RE and in child care and would like to hire one extra child care provider to work with April Caron, our Child Care coordinator. Please contact Jo Walter at email@example.com or call 479-3117.
