Current RE Programming

Sunday Mornings

Services are held at 10:30 am on Sunday mornings. (During the summer, July 7 - September 8, services are held at 9:30 am.) Each Sunday, except the first Sunday of the month (discussed below), the Pre-K through 12th grade children and youth begin in the sanctuary, with their families, for the first 15-20 minutes of the service. This allows families to worship together with the entire congregation through opening words, hymns, chalice lighting and a Story for All Ages. The children and youth then go to their classes, which conclude at 11:45. All classes, except for the middle and high school classes, require a parent pick-up at 11:45. All children and youth, infant through high school must be registered for RE. Please visit the RE Registration page to download the form and send it to Anne Dodson, Director of Religious Education.

Children's Worship

On the first Sunday of most months, a full-length Children's Worship will be held for Pre-K through 5th grades. It is designed to build a sense of community among our children as they establish their own traditions and rituals. It mirrors the adult service with opening words, a chalice lighting, stones of sharing, songs, a story, an offering and closing words. Doing this together in community helps us to grow lifelong UUs. Please see the RE Master Calendar for dates of Children's Worship.

About Our Curriculum

Pre K – 3rd Grade: Picture Book UU

This curriculum nutures children in ethics, spirit, faith, and Unitarian Universalist (UU) identity through stories, activities, and social justice projects.

4th – 5th Grade: Harry and UU

A social action curriculum based on J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. The discussions and activities will teach kids that one can work to make the world better and examine ways to take on social responsibility in their daily lives.

6th – 8th Grade: D'Oh God

Using the television show The Simpsons, we will present questions about religious or theological issues. The topics will inspire conversation and activities to help kids consider differing religious beliefs and traditions. They will examine how our faith helps us gain understanding and approaches to deal with issues in our lives.

Grades 6 – 8: Junior Youth Group

JYG meets on the 1st Sunday of every month, led by Andy Whaley.

Grades 9 – 12: Youth

The Sunday morning high school program here at UUFHC is one of worship, social action, bonding and exploring. All Sunday RE meetings are planned and led by youth and adult volunteers. The volunteer advisers are Tom Slentz, Sara Stees, Mark Davis, Sue Knause, Marlene Lieb, Dyrck Van Dusen, Gina Van Dusen, and Rene Varela. On Sunday mornings, the youth begin in the sanctuary with worship, and after the Story for All Ages, they go back to the youth room. There they spend time in group activities that encourage team building, discussion and fun. This group has lots of overnight events, projects and laughter! The class is open to all 9th–12th graders, including visitors.
