This Sunday, Summer, 2014
PreK - Sr. High: Water Communion - The water Communion is a staple in UU congregations around the world. It is a symbol that the church year has begun and it is time to come into communion with one another. But, what does it mean to be truly in communion? How does this spiritual community affect us? How do we affect it? And, why does any of this matter? You'll explore these questions and many more in this multi-sensory, intergenerational, alternative worship. Come prepared to engage, move, participate and communion with one another.
Chalica Book - A beginners guide to Chalica. Contains an introduction, a resource page, a brief history of Chalica, and suggestions on how to celebrate and honor each principle with actions, food, gifts, and books.
Beyond Ramps and Restrooms - Within this blog you'll find links, resources, reviews and information about today's technology - and how that technology may be used to welcome people with disabilities in our congregations and beyond.
The Accidental DRE - RE and Family Ministry ideas, musings and other resources.
RE Volunteer Survey - Want to volunteer in RE? Let us know here! A freindly reminder, for the safety of our children, volunteers may be background checked at random.
