Dear Families,

Every year we do a  Religious Exploration Registration during the first couple of weeks in May so that we can easily plan classrooms and classroom coverage through our teaching cooperative before the summer arrives.

This year, we are trying to save the paper…so we are asking you to please register using the online form that is linked below.  It is very, very helpful when you register now so the RE committee can be all planned before we adjourn for the summer!!

UUCW- Religious Exploration is All About Community!

On Sunday mornings at UUCW, we offer Religious Exploration classes for children (from preschool to middle school)  during the worship service. In addition, special programming for teenagers is provided throughout the year including the weekly Youth Group for high school students held on Sunday evenings.

Our RE Theme for the 2016 -17 Church Year is “Circle ‘Round for People, Planet and Peace.” The theme is inspired by the UU hymn, “Circle ‘Round for Freedom”

Our classes begin September 25, 2016 and end June 11, 2017 with the RE Sunday Celebration.

Classes offered for 2016-17 are:

Nursery (birth – age 3)
Spirit Play (Pre-K/Kindergarten)
Wonderful Welcome (grades 1 )
Connections (Grades 2&3)
Bibleodeon (Grades 4-6)
Our 2016-17 Prospectus can be found on the RE Blog.

We will hold two OWL (Our Whole Lives) 6-week programs for grades 4-6 beginning at the end of February.

The year long Coming of Age program will be offered beginning in the fall of 2016 for grades 7 and 8. The class is underway at this time .
