It is time to register all children and youth for RE, even if you already turned one in last year. It can be found in “forms” on the CHILDREN/YOUTH dropdown menu above.  It can be mailed to Susan Ryder, UUSO, 16 Ford Ave, Oneonta NY 13820; emailed to dre@uuso.org, or left in the office wall pocket in the kitchen hallway at Chapin.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

Childcare in the nursery is available on all Sunday mornings from 10:20 to noon for those up to age five.  It is located in the lower level Rainbow Rooms at Chapin Memorial Church.

Children of all ages are always 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 busy.  Look for special bags for those under age 3.

               Please retrieve your child from the nursery after the service.

October 13: 

EXPLORERS (K-3RD GRADE) AND SEEKERS (4-6TH GRADE) will start their day in their classrooms downstairs at Chapin.

This year both groups will learn about how children all over the world celebrate their religious holidays. There will be a belief statement posted in their room for each lesson.  Today’s is: Unitarian Universalists believe that it is up to each one of us to fight evil.

Explorers (grades K-3) and Seekers (grades 4-6)  will celebrate Dussehra, a Hindu festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. Hindu children in India have a very old story that they love with heroes and villains: the story of Prince Rama and Ravana, the Demon with Ten Heads. Participants will get to hear this story and act it out with puppets.

JR/SR YRUU (Young Religious Unitarian Universalists in grades 7-12) will plan for the next few weeks and play games to get ready for their Game Event with Rev. Craig. They meet at the nearby Olympia Brown House, 16 Ford Ave, at 10:30.

OCT 13 YRUU GAME EVENT WITH REV. CRAIG!

Noon to 2PM at the Bearded Dragon

THERE WILL BE PIZZA!

(The Bearded Dragon is across the street from church

off the Dietz St. parking lot)

YRUU Participants, Advisors, Minister, and YRUU Friends will play games

and then “UU” the games by making the circle wider . . .
