This Week in Religious Education

What is happening for children, youth, and families at OUUC

Snacks, please!

Our children and youth really appreciate having a snack on Sunday morning. We provide snacks as part of the Spirit Play class with a practice called "Feast time" that emphasizes the spiritual practice of eating together and giving thanks. We have snacks in our Labyrinth Learning class and in our youth group meetings. Snacks are important!

But there are two things we need from you to help make snack time a success:

1) We need up to date information about your child's allergies and dietary needs. Please make sure you are registered, and if anything ever changes let us know.

2) We need snacks! All of our snacks are by donation, meaning some kind person donates the food. There are two ways to donate snacks: either a non-perishable and unopened item (with an ingredient list) is placed in the cupboard labeled "RE" in the kitchen, or you can sign up to bring a fresh snack on this form.

Our cupboards are pretty bare right now, so your help is greatly appreciated.

Sunday and Every Day: Taking It Home

Last Sunday we learned about the earliest Unitarians in America, and William Ellery Channing ("The Father of American Unitarianism").

  • Do you think Channing was a prophetic person? What inspiration can we draw from his story?

Looking Ahead, Sunday October 28th

On Sunday October 28th, we will be honoring our elders and our ancestors, and talking about what prophetic truths they have left us.
