Kids at Church - Children's RE

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.

KUUF Guest at Your Table 2016-2017

Guest at Your Table (GAYT) is UUSC’s annual intergenerational program to raise support for and awareness about our work to advance human rights.

This year’s program theme is Defying Hate, based on the recent release of the Ken Burns documentary about UUSC founders Martha and Waitstill Sharp, Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War(on PBS). The Sharps defied hate by helping Jews and dissidents escape Nazi Germany using brave, creative methods, many of which could have caused them to be imprisoned, tortured, or worse. 

 UUSC is proud to carry forward the Sharps’ legacy by continuing to defy hate and protect the lives and rights of refugees, asylum seekers, and other marginalized groups, both here in the United States and throughout the world.

Please take home a box for your change, dollars or check made out to KUUF.  All our collective boxes will be put together as a whole and mailed to the UUSC’s fund.  Collect money from now until Jan. 15, 2017 and bring back the church by Jan. 15.  Thank you!   Click here for more information.

Childcare Requests

If you need childcare outside the 10 a.m. to noon time on Sunday morning, or for a special event/meeting please let Jenell DeMatteo, RE Associate, know at least 48 hours in advance of the need (prefer as much time as possible) to coordinate childcare workers.  She may be contacted at dematteo@olypen.com

 

Childcare 

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 can begin in childcare at 10 am rather than being sung out with the older kids.

For parents who need childcare on Sunday mornings outside of the 10-12 time or for special KUUF events or meetings, please let Jenell DeMatteo know at least 48 hours in advance of the need so childcare workers can be coordinated.

Registration

If you would like your children to participate in RE program or childcare please fill out a registration form available at the Fellowship office, childcare room, or contact Jenell DeMatteo, RE Associate on Sunday mornings or dematteo@olypen.com dematteo@olypen.com or 360-822-9821.
