RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION
A Note from Barbara Jimenez,
Director of Religious Exploration
Click here for our current RE Calendar which is still being filled in with volunteers.
The RE committee has been diligently working with the parents and Rev. Tom to create a virtual program that will continue to foster a space for the youth to feel supported and connected. The older youth (middle and high schoolers) will have a monthly Zoom call alternating with Rev. Tom and Shae to discuss a movie and how it relates to UU Principles. The elementary school age children will have a monthly Zoom call to watch an animated clip and discuss the lesson it teaches. All RE youth will also have a monthly Zoom hangout day where they will play games together. We will continue to evaluate and shift as needed to insure a space of flexibility and connection.
