RE Programming will begin on October 7th.
Unitarian Universalists view religious development as a journey every individual makes. Our congregation is an affirming and challenging environment which supports its members in their personal odysseys. Our program is staffed by volunteers.
Our programming is open to all, regardless of religious background or present beliefs, non-beliefs and wonderings. We gather to worship, celebrate, learn and grow. Come join us! RE programming meets from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 a.m., at the same time as the regular Sunday worship service. The youth leave the 11 a.m. service after the Event for All Ages.
We offer the following Sunday morning religious education programming for children and youth through grade 12.
In addition to our regular programming, RE Youth in 8th - 12th grade are invited to participate in the Our Whole Lives (OWL) program this year.
Greater Nashville Unitarian Unviersalist Congregation
Religious Education Programming
October 2012 - May 2013
UU Story & Play
Age Level: Nursery/Preschool
Description: Children aged 3 months to 4 years will join Suzanna for a UU friendly story and discussion, followed by free play.
Love Will Guide Us
Age Level: Kindergarten - 4th Grade
Description: In this program, participants learn to seek guidance in life through the lens of our Unitarian Universalist Sources, with an emphasis on love. Together we ask questions such as, "Where did we come from?" "What is our relationship to the Earth and other creatures?" "How can we respond with love, even in bad situations?" "What happens when you die?" Sessions apply wisdom from our Sources to help participants answer these questions. Participants will learn that asking questions is valued in Unitarian Universalism, even as they begin to shape their own answers.
Religion in Life
Age Level: 5th - 7th Grade
Description: This program has three purposes: 1) To help participants learn more about religion in general and their own in particular: UU history, beliefs, programs, and organization. 2) To guide participants in exploring their own beliefs in order to better understand themselves and others. 3) To present ways in which Unitarian Universalists can put their religious beliefs into practice.
Youth Group / Our Whole Lives
