This Week in RE

Content updated Thursday, Feb. 16th, 2017

It's been a particularly busy week at First Unitarian.  This week, we welcomed Jeanette Vizguerra and her family into our building.  We provide sanctuary to immigrants facing deportation as a way of living our values and principles.  Here, we believe that all souls are sacred and worthy.  Here, we believe that every person needs a voice in our democratic society.  Here, we endeavor to build a fair, just, and peaceful world.  Living our values can be exciting and challenging.  Together, we serve our community with love as we seek justice.  We come together this week as an intergenerational community to reflect on the evil of oppression, and the triumph of those who actively stand for love.  We shall not be moved. 

Each week, this page is updated with announcements and information to help families fully engage with our Religious Exploration Program.  Please see our newest edition of the Religious Education Program Guide or our Program Specific Web Pages (listed to the right) for more information.  Please contact our Director of Religious Exploration, Erin Kenworthy, at erin@fusden.org with questions and feedback.

On most Sunday mornings, all children and youth are asked to join their families in the service to participate in our "Time For All Ages."  Please take a look at our RE dry erase board next to the welcome table for weekly details and instructions before heading into the service.  Children will be sung out to their classes and escorted by their teachers to their classrooms.  Teachers will sign children in to class when they take attendance, parents are asked to sign children in 5th grades and younger out when picking them up promptly following the service. Join us following the service in the RE family area in our Community Room for connection and information.

If you are new, have changed information since last year, or are unsure if your child is registered in our program, please register your child/ren online (see "Register" to the right) at www.fusden.org
