RE Updates for Week of March 19, 2023

New RE Outdoor Space

Spring is around the corner and the Religious Exploration (RE) committee is looking for feedback from children, parents, and the Murray community about what they would like to see in the new RE Outdoor Space. This gift is possible because of the generous support RE received from the dedicated offering in December. Join us today, Sunday, March 19th at 11:30 am for a planning meeting in Harmony Hall.

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 your visit and decide you want to. There is no fee for participation in our program.

Use the contact form below to contact Carol Konvalinka-Connolly, our Director of Lifespan Religious Exploration, for more information and to register.

Little SoUUls

Little SoUUls is a weekday playgroup, Tuesdays 10-11 am during the church year, that connects parents and children (ages 0-5) in the Attleboro area. Children will enjoy open-ended play and adults can socialize in a relaxed environment. Each week we read a story reflecting Unitarian Universalist values of kindness, fairness, equity, diversity, peace, or responsibility.

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.
