Firefly Friday Family Fellowship

Firefly Friday

Mark your calendar for Firefly Friday Night Family Fellowship on Friday, August 5th from 6-8 pm.

Looking for a compassionate, fun, and welcoming community? Are weekends too busy for church but you’d still like the benefit of a faith community? Join us for our new family service on select Fridays.

Join us in community for a new series focusing on Family Fellowship and our UU Values. Firefly Friday will be held in the backyard at Murray Unitarian Universalist Church! Think brief UU service and then campfire, kids’ crafts, corn hole, glowsticks, and s’mores. Although not required a donation for the family dinner provided is welcomed and appreciated the night of the event.

Tell us you’re coming!

 

Religious education for children

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. By attending programs with the Murray Community, our children (from toddlers through 6th grade) choose to journey using our “think minds, loving hearts, and helping hands” respecting ourselves and others while supported by being together with one another. Our programs include Unitarian Universalism, the wisdom of World Religions, Self-Care, and care for the interconnected web of life. The values that we will be highlighting in this year’s programs are respect, compassion, community, growth, service, conscience, justice, interdependence, integrity, and care. These values are inspired by both the Unitarian Universalist principles and Murray Church’s own covenant.

When the pandemic numbers are hopefully soon safe to gather in big groups again, we look forward to again offering some really FUN multigenerational activities for folks of all ages to enjoy together such as game night, a dance costume party, and a pajama movie night.

Each family is asked to register all children who will be participating in our programming for children and/or youth after you visit and decide you want to. There is no fee for participation in our program. Contact Carol Konvalinka-Connolly, our Director of Lifespan Religious Education, for more information and to register.

Unitarian Universalist Principles for Kids

We believe:

  • That each and every person is important;
  • That all people should be treated fairly and with kindness;
  • That we should accept one another and keep on learning together;
  • That each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life;
  • That all persons should have a voice in the things that concern them;
  • In working for a peaceful, fair, and free world;
  • In caring for our planet earth, the home we share with all living things.
