December 1 – Simple Gifts

Posted by on Oct 31, 2019 in Coming Up in RE, Religious Exploration

RE is collec/ting donations for a “Simple Gifts” class. We would appreciate your donation of small, unwrapped, inexpensive gift items for all ages—this is the perfect time to “regift” those items that you don’t have a use for! Items should be in good condition, but don’t need to be new!

RE children will “shop” for holiday gifts for their family members and friends during class on December 1. The class is a great lesson for the students about the spirit of giving! Please bring your donations to First Parish any time during November. Items can be left in the RE Office or given to Director Jenna Kyes. Thank you!

  • Religious Exploration for children and youth in grades K-8:

This Sunday, October 13, our all-ages Religious Exploration class will encourage our students to think about the rituals and symbols, both secular and religious, that are part of their lives.  Together we will explore our everyday rituals, the rituals that are part of our spiritual practice, and the symbols that are meaningful to us as Unitarian Universalists.  Students will also have an opportunity to play a symbol game, and they will use watercolors to create unique symbols that represent them as individuals.
