Coming Up In RE: March 2018

 

Coming Up In RE: March 2018: This month in Religious Exploration, our children will be moving forward with the theme of “Transformation”. With Spring on the horizon, there’s no better time to begin talking about the transformation of seasons, of ideas, and of all living beings great and small. Our Explorers this month will be focusing on our first UU principle, affirming the inherent worth and dignity of all people, by looking at ways in which we each transform over time, and how we help others to do the same. We’ll be using stories, art, and even science to observe the physical world and how a small act can cause an immense change. The UU humanist teachings counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, so we have some pretty entertaining and enlightening science experiments about transformation planned over the coming weeks! The children who take part each week in Spirit Play will be hearing stories and taking part in activities that help them to engage in independent thinking and problem solving and allow their understanding of our UU principles to grow while continuing to foster their creativity.

Nursery care: Our littlest UUs will have their class as usual in the SED room on the first floor.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Helping shape the lives of our younger members is important, and as a community we are tasked with that shaping. Each person who takes part in planning activities, hosting classes, or providing care and direction to our children and youth, plays an integral role in each child’s life here at FPS. RE is always in need of volunteers within Nursery, Spirit Play, and Explorers. If you are interested in learning more about volunteering, or would like to sign up, please email the Director of Religious Exploration, Michele Barkhauer at:
