Religious Education Program for Children and Youth
Religious Education/Faith Development for children and youth this church year has been re-invented. What we will miss is meeting together with our friends and peers in person on a weekly basis. What we gain are
- new connections through multigenerational offerings
- direct relationship between worship services & the educational material
- opportunities to explore a broader range of issues in our contemporary world
- more guidance to practice and deepen our faith all week long as individuals and families
Summer 2021 Faith Development
will explore the Seven UU Principles and enrich your daily practices.
Weekly you will receive activity packets that will include meditations, discussion prompts, arts and crafts, family fun and a suggested at home worship. There will be something for everyone, ages 1 – 100; studying as a group or individual.
Register by May 23 to receive a package of supplies and special gifts for each one of your celebrations.
Please join us Sunday, June 6 at 2:00 pm to kick off the Summer Program
and create your very own Chalice!
ALL Sundays will occur at 2:00 pm via zoom
How do I get the zoom link? That’s right – REGISTER!
About Our Children and Youth Ministry
At BRUU, we strive to help our children, youth, and their families grow spiritually with lives filled with compassion and wholeness. Through our Sunday morning Religious Education programs and a variety of family fellowship opportunities, we seek to cultivate in our children both a love of liberal religious life and a sense of belonging in a wider faith community.
Our Religious Education Program is one that:
Introduces children to beliefs and celebrations of a variety of religious traditions and values
Explores UU purposes and principles and how they relate to children’s lives
Provides opportunities to explore and develop religious thoughts and beliefs in a loving and supportive environment
Promotes the care and well-being of people of all ages through multi-generational services and special events
In order to ensure that our children are well grounded in the many different aspects of our religious tradition, we have chosen three basic areas of religious education content with which we want our children to be familiar. We call these areas Pillars: Unitarian Universalist Identity, World Religions, and Judeo-Christian Heritage. Using this approach, our children can build on what they have already learned without structured learning becoming obviously repetitive
