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.
