What Makes a Religious Education Program Work? -- RE Notes for July 2018

What makes a Religious Education program work? What makes it possible?

Is it a stellar curriculum? While important, no curriculum does not a program make. A personal story and a meaningful message can make a great class.[Click "Read more..." to continue]

How about facilities? Good guess! Everybody knows I love a sparkly clean, well-organized classroom. But if our Transcendentalist forbearers have taught us
anything, it’s that Nature can be one of the very best teachers. So no, a classroom is not a must when the Outdoors are always available.

Kids! Kids, Heather, are certainly what makes an RE program possible. Ah, a valiant effort, friends, but no. Children are not the program. They are what the
program is for. They are the purpose of the program, the reason for its very existence.

An RE program can not exist without YOU. The congregation. The people who volunteer. The lifeblood of Religious Education are the teachers who show up
without fail every Sunday, the parents who bring snacks, the guests who offer a new perspective or specialty.

You are the cultivators of the future of Unitarian Universalism. You are the purveyors of faith, wisdom, experience, and compassion to the next generation of truth-seekers.

Worried that you’ve only been a UU for a year? No problem! We need your fresh perspective and unique story. Afraid you’re too old and out of touch with the kids? No worries! You are a wealth of information and experiences that are vital for the education of our youth.

Can you sew? We need you. Can you cook? We need you. Have you traveled the world? We need you. Are you a life-long UU? We need you. Are you an atheist? We need you. Are you a parent? We need you. Are you a broke college student? We need you.

Are you a member of UUFG? We. Need. YOU.

Religious Education Registration

All children and adolescents involved in any Religious Education program at UUFG, including Youth Group, must have a current, updated, registration form filled out and on file.

A new registration form needs to be filled out annually or whenever a child’s living situation changes. Any time new people wish to attend UUFG Religious Education classes, they can register.

Parents, children and youth do NOT need to be members of UUFG to register for and participate in UUFG Religious Education and Youth Group programs.
