About Our Lifespan Religious Education Program

In focusing on Lifespan Religious Education, Murray Unitarian Universalist Church affirms its desire to offer opportunities for everyone in the congregation to grow and develop. Each person is called to seek out their own path.

By becoming part of the Murray Community, we choose to walk this path with others and be nurtured and supported by our being with one another. Our three year pillar system plan includes Unitarian Universalism, World Religions, Self-Worth, Self-Care and our respect and care for the interconnected web of life. We offer Our Whole Lives (OWL) to our 7-9th graders every other year.

Sunday School Registration for 2018-2019

Each family is asked to register all children who will be participating in the Nursery care, Sunday School, or Youth Group by completing our Family Registration Form.  There is no fee for participation in our program.  We have two forms:

The first form is the Family Registration for Children (Nursery school age to 7th Grade)

The second form is for Youth Group Registration (for Grades 8-12)

... or you may contact Kavita Vansant, our Director of Lifespan Religious Education for more information and to register: kkvansant@gmail.com. Please note that the Registration Form must be printed out and signed by a parent/guardian.  The Registration Forms will also be available at church.

 

 

Nursery Care

Each Sunday during the worship service, we provide nurturing, loving and consistent care for our babies through pre-school youngsters.  Families wishing to use our nursery must register their children with the RE program and must remain in the building during nursery operation.  The nursery will be open to receive children any time after 9:45 am, and parents are asked to pick up children immediately following the conclusion of the worship service.  

 

 

Junior High Class and OWL Program

At Murray Church, we offer the Our Whole Lives (OWL) program every other year to 7th-9th graders. The next OWL session will be offered during the 2019-2020 church year. The OWL program is sometimes referred to as “sex ed,” but really it’s more than that. OWL is a sexuality education program for youth that models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice. It helps kids make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior. We equip participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives not only provides facts about anatomy and human development, but also helps participants clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality. We respect each family’s decision to enroll or not enroll their child in OWL. Parents who wish to enroll their children in OWL will be invited to an orientation in September before we begin.

High School Youth Group Program

Murray high school age students are invited to participate in Youth Group.  Our Youth Group offers a varied program which includes learning about our faith, service projects, discussion of social issues, plus an opportunity to have fun. Our youth are also offered many opportunities to participate and volunteer in many areas of our church.
