Children and Youth Religious Education (3 April 2022)

On this Sunday (3 April 2022), children and youth religious education classes will resume in person and will happen during our 11:00 AM worship service.

We will resume our pre-COVID practice where the children and youth will join us in the sanctuary for the first 15-20 minutes and then we will sing them out to their classes.

If your child does not want to go to class, that is also OK — our services are welcoming for all ages.

We will be starting out initially with two classes grouped by age / grade:

Elementary – Pre-K – 5th Grade (Teachers:  Ashford McLain and Kevin Henry) — Our theme is “Peace, Social Justice, and the Interdependent Web.”  This week, the group will continue to welcome newcomers and plan service projects in keeping with the Eight Principles of Unitarian Universalism.

Middle and High School (Teachers:  Ken Peterson and Eric First) — The group has made an initial plan for changes and additions to the classroom mural, and will meet with an artist on 10 April 2022 to further solidify those plans.  Meanwhile, input into the ongoing creative process is welcome and appreciated.  This week, the group will also be looking at Louisiana’s version of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill just passed in Florida and how they might register their views on it with its legislative sponsor.

Note — We have not yet brought back nursery care for our littlest members and visitors who cannot yet be vaccinated for COVID.  However, babies and toddlers are welcome to stay with their parents in the sanctuary.  We are very understanding about baby sounds in worship.
