Religious Education Committee

The mission of the Religious Education Committee (REC) is to work with the Director of Religious Education (DRE) to oversee the RE program for children from birth through 8th grade and the Coming-of-Age and Our Whole Lives sexuality education programs for teens.

Recent Projects Include:

  • Recruiting adult and youth guides to work with different RE age groups.
  • Selecting the curriculum and programming for the year.
  • Overseeing social justice projects.
  • Supporting field trips, such as the New York City social justice trip for the youth.
  • Collaborating with other committees on congregational endeavors.

REC members would like you to know:

We have good food at every meeting.

Our reward is seeing how much our children love the program.

We are helping to shape the future of Unitarian Universalism.

If you want to help with the children and youth, but don’t feel comfortable being a Sunday morning RE guide or don’t have time because you are busy during the service, then this is the place to be.

This is also the ideal group for those volunteers who are so passionate about their RE work that they want to help with the visionary process for our RE programs and connect with like-minded adults.

Meetings: Monthly

Commitment to Participate: Presently there is a two-year term with an option for a third year. We invite you to come to a meeting to see if the REC is a good way for you to give back to the community.

Roles: The REC is made up of five to seven people, headed by one or two chairpersons. One committee member attends Program Council meetings. Another member acts as the liaison and support person to the Morris Dancing program. Roles can be combined as appropriate to the members of the REC. The REC members attend meetings to determine policies and procedures. They serve as an advisory committee to, and collaborators with, the DRE.
