From Jamila Batchelder, Director of Religious Education:
I am excited to be starting a new year in religious education! After our fall programming spent transitioning back into our in-person church community, we will start returning to some of our church life traditions. Vaccinated children will start with the adults upstairs in the service for a centering time before heading downstairs to their classes. And we will split into our usual classes: Potter Class, Schweitzer Class, Thoreau Class, Adams Class, and YUUTs.
Each class needs a teacher and an aide, which requires a lot of volunteers. If you have found UUCC in the last year and are interested in getting involved, this is one of the most rewarding ministries in the church. We would love to have you involved! We are also getting ready to resume our sexuality education program, Our Whole Lives. It is going to be an exciting semester in R.E.!
