This Week in Religious Education

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

This Sunday's Classes

This Sunday will be our final Maker Space class for this year. It has been a wonderful summer program, and a HUGE thank you to all who have been Guest Makers!

It has been such a treat to see the many talents of our OUUC members:

  • Carbon Marshall, music making and production
  • Joe Joy, calligraphy
  • Sara St Clair, yarn bombing
  • Kate Harrington, cross stitch embroidery
  • Carol Williams, basket weaving
  • Melanie Ransom and Karen Jackson, sewing ministry
  • Connie Ruhl, bonsai

Thank you all!

(What comes next? September 9th will be an All Ages worship service, then our First Family Chapel and Classes of the year will be September 16th)

The RE Sign In Clipboard has moved ....

Have you noticed that the cart with the clipboard is not next to the sanctuary doors anymore? We are trying to make the sign-in process more integrated for visiting families, and so the clipboard for ALL children to sign in is now on the Welcome kiosk.

Watch this short video to see where you need to go now to sign your children in for Religious Education classes on a Sunday morning!
