RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

Childcare in the nursery is available on Sunday mornings from 10:15 to noon for those up to age 10.  It is located in the lower level Rainbow Rooms at Chapin Memorial Church.

 Children of all ages are welcome to attend the service in the sanctuary. Chalice bags are available in the foyer for anyone of any age who is better able to participate in a Sunday service while keeping their hands busy.  There are special bags for those under age 3.

Sept. 24th:  Religious Education Classes Begin!

All classes start at 10:30.

THE WEB OF LIFE EXPLORERS CLASS (K-3rd Grade) will meet in the lower level at Chapin.  This year they are exploring the interconnectedness of all living things.  Today’s class will get to know each other, make name tags, create a class covenant and be introduced to their own special piece of earth at the nearby Olympia Brown House (16 Ford Ave).  Please pick up your Explorer in the classroom before noon.

THE POPCORN THEOLOGY CLASS (4-5th grade) will begin at 10:30 in their classroom in the lower level at Chapin.  This year will be an exploration of issues of theology and ethics.  They will watch film clips, have discussions and activities and eat popcorn. This class is called “No Blank Slate” and they will watch clips from the movie: Back to the Future. They will discuss how our choices affect the future. They will create a class covenant, make name tags and play jenga.

THE MID-TEENS/COAST* (6-8th grade): Mid-Teens and COAST will meet at 10:30 at the nearby Olympia Brown House, 16 Ford Ave. Today’s class will be an introduction and a chance to talk about all the things they will do together this year.  You do not have to be a part of COAST to attend Sunday classes.

*COAST stands for “Coming of Age Spiritual Trek” and is open to UUSO 6-9th Graders and friends.  It is a coming-of-age program to address a youth’s passage from childhood to adolescence/adulthood with the support of other youth, an adult mentor, adult advisors, and our congregation.  It includes a lively curriculum, retreats, service projects, meetings with mentors and other activities. See COAST Coordinator Elayne Mosher Campoli or DRE Susan Ryder for more information.

THE YRUU (9-12th grade): Will attend today’s service in the sanctuary. Please speak with Susan Ryder if you would instead like to help with the RE program today.
