This Week in Religious Education

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

Multigenerational Worship Service This Week

No Religious Education classes this Sunday

This Sunday is our annual Water Communion worship service. This is a multigenerational service, so the children and youth stay in the worship service the whole time and there are no religious education classes. The nursery will be open for children ages 4 and under.


For this worship service, you are invited to bring water from your summer (from a literal or metaphorical journey) if you like.


September dates to put on your calendar:


  • 9/8: multigenerational worship service for Water Communion (no Religious Education classes). 12:45 High School Soul Matters meeting to reflect on the theme of the month.
  • 9/15: first full religious education classes of the year. RE Volunteers dedicated in the worship services.
  • 9/22: RE classes continue, High School group meets at 12:30 for covenanting and group fun.
  • 9/27-9/29: UU Puget Sound Middle School Con (see below for registration info)

High School Group Begins This Sunday

High School group will meet at 12:45 (ish - following the welcome for Rev. Gear) for their first meeting of this church year.


They will be exploring the theme of the month: Expectations. All youth 9th-12th grades are invited!

Back to School Blessings

On my mind today: how much I love seeing your back to school pics and how much I love your kids—all our kids. May they be kind to themselves as well as to others. May they be challenged and delighted as their potential unfolds. May they be safe and resilient. May they travel through joyful and difficult days with friends and all the support they need to grow.
