Children & Youth RE Class Descriptions
Our UUFP Religious Education classes utilize the Soul Matters Sharing Circle materials.
These are monthly theme-based lessons developed for Pre-K through 12th grade.
Our 2021-2022 themes focus on our relationships with our times, on some of the central work and spiritual practices needed during this period of radical change, challenge, crisis and opportunity.
In particular, we will explore the challenges and adventure of...
September: Embracing Possibility
October: Cultivating Relationship
November: Holding History
December: Opening to Joy
January: Living with Intention
February: Widening the Circle
March: Renewing Faith
May: Nurturing Beauty
June: Celebrating Blessings
Each week children will discover what is inside the Wonder Box. They will practice a meditation together and hear a story relating to the monthly theme. We will begin with a chalice lighting and give kids a chance to check in with each other about their week. The creators of Soul Matters have taken extra care to include activities that will work well online to keep everyone engaged.
