RE Curricula for Children & Youth Programs

During the 11 a.m. service, children and youth religious exploration occurs in age-grouped classes, from toddlers to high school. We focus on exploration, rather than an emphasis on indoctrination. Age-appropriate curriculum themes and topics vary each year, and often from season to season. Some of AUUF's RE curricula comes from the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) national curricula, which includes interactive, hands-on activities, stories and ideas from across the religious landscape. Several other stellar curricula are used during years when the exploration focus is on World Religions.

.

Chalice Circles/ Classes are currently being held outside until the weather gets too cold, for Preschool - 4th grade each Sunday.

JR Youth, 5th - 8th outside Sunday mornings.

We will begin an additional opportunity for RE through a zoom Chalice Circle in October.  The ZOOM link will be on the RE Facebook group or the REMIND app where all notifications will be posted.

We will reassess about in building RE classes later in the fall as [COVID] and [vaccines for kids] changes

If you are not a member of both of these, please contact  Rosene Beachy, DLRE.

The RE  Chalice Circles this year will be based on the Soul Matters themes and UU Principles. 

Youth groups will consist of a variety of games, sharing and topic discussion.

The Soul Matters Sharing Circle is a network of Unitarian Universalist congregations who follow the same monthly themes so we can more easily share small group material, as well as worship, sermon, music and children’s religious education resources. In 2019, AUUF joined this web of support and connection, and now we travel a new journey together each month.
