Blessing of the Backpacks and the Water Ceremony will take place on Sunday, September 11. You won’t want to miss this Sunday!
Multigenerational Service Preview: Participants from this year’s Appalachia Service Project trip will present later in October – stay tuned.
RE programming is starting back up again this fall, so that means we need chalice lighters! If your family has recently completed the Chalice Lighting Programming, please sign up with this link. You can also indicate in the comments section if your child prefers to serve as chalice keeper in-person or online.
Religious Programming starts on Sept. 18, and it is going to be a great year! We have many wonderful teachers and helpers already lined up, but are still looking for the following:
- Teachers: grades 4-6 and grades 7-9.
- Helpers: grades K-3 and grades 10-12.
All that is required is 1-2 Sundays a month from 10:15-11:15. If you’ve been wanting to get to know the children and youth at UUCM, now is your chance! Curriculum and game/ice breaker ideas are provided for each lesson, and Karen, UUCM’s Director of Family Ministry, can provide whatever support you may need throughout the semester or year. Teacher training for the fall session will take place on Saturday, Sept. 10. If interested in teaching, helping, or being placed on a substitute list, please email Karen. Thanks for considering!
It’s time for another year of great programming and invaluable connections at UUCM. If your family hasn’t signed up to participate or teach a classroom yet, now’s your chance! Teacher training will be on Sept. 10, and all RE classes will begin Sept. 18. Ask a friend to join you and make it even more fun. Click here to register or send Karen an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Children and Youth Religious Education (CYRE) team has spent the last year reimagining their logo while holding their vision of Open Minds, Loving Hearts and Helping Hands. The new logo is here and you will start to see it more as we begin a new RE program year. We hope you enjoy it!
