RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

Childcare in the nursery is available on Sunday mornings from 10:20 to noon for those up to age 5.  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 their hands busy.  Look for special bags for those under age 3.

Sunday April 8, 2018

This Sunday there will be no Time for All Ages so all classes will begin at 10:30

Web of Life Explorers (K-3rd grade):

Explorers will begin their day in their classroom downstairs at Chapin Memorial Church.  This year they are exploring the interconnectedness of all living things.  Today’s class is called: “Experiences with Birds, Nests, and Eggs”.

Popcorn Theology Seekers Class (4-5th grade):

Seekers will meet at 10:30 in their classroom in the lower level at Chapin.  This year’s class is an exploration of issues of theology and ethics. Today’s class is about pride, courage, forgiveness and responsibility. They will watch a clip from the animated movie, “Brave”.

Mid-teens and Teens (6-12th grade):

Mid-Teens and COAST will finish their weekend Circle of Life retreat. Theywill have breakfast and then meet until the end of today’s service in their classroom upstairs at the nearby Olympia Brown House, 16 Ford Ave.

*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 COAST group is grateful for our congregation’s help with their fundraising! Your generosity will help them on their way to their Pilgrimage in Boston in May.

YRUU (Young Religious UU’s in 9-12th Grade)

Teens in YRUU will have class today upstairs at the nearby Olympia Brown House, 16 Ford Ave. The group may also decide to attend today’s service in the sanctuary.

UUSO Religious Education Quick Facts:

·       Register your child for Religious Education Classes if you haven’t already done so.  Forms may be found in the foyer. Completed forms can be left in the wall pocket for delivery to the church office. There is no fee.

·       Check the glass bulletin board as you enter the church to see if your K-5th grader begins their day in the sanctuary with you or in their classroom. 6th graders and above always begin classes right at 10:30 at the Olympia Brown House.

·       Visit your K-3rd grader to retrieve them from their classroom after the service. Those in 4th grade and above may walk to meet you  unaccompanied at fellowship time after the service.

·       Guests are always welcome. Encourage your child to bring a friend! You are also welcome to visit your child’s classroom at any time.
