This Week in Religious Education

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

February's Theme is Resilience

Big picture

This month the theme is “Resilience”.

Resilience is interesting, because it is defined as both strength and flexibility, the ability to withstand pressure and the quality of bouncing back to integrity and wholeness after a pressure or deformation.

Resilience is also a major focus of parenting and education these days! For kids, it's all about growth mindset, learning from failure, and being able to ask for help. Read more here.

This Sunday:

Mystery Pals begins February 16th

Mystery Pals is a multi-Sunday event in which children and youth are anonymously (it’s a Mystery!) paired up with an older person (a youth or adult). Pairings are based on shared interests, and participants learn who their Mystery Pals are only on the final Sunday.
