We will have regular Kids R.E on 5/15 with a yoga exploration including a special activity to have fun preparing for our theatrical improv performance debuting during Youth Sunday on 5/22. The theme of the service is “Respecting All Living Beings” and will include an opportunity to perform in an improv theatrical production based on Douglas Wood’s books about Old Turtle.
Youth Group members should stay tuned for emails from their awesome leader, Heidi, for confirmation of their upcoming plans, including a breakfast outing happening this Sunday, May 15th. OWL will also be meeting on May 15th for their finale session (unless Covid cases forces us to postpone).
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.
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.
Meaningful and inspiring Religious Education programming for adults — discussions, workshops, and other events that contribute to spiritual growth, lifelong religious learning, and a deep understanding of the world in which we live.
Grades 7 to 9
Our Whole Lives sexuality education program
We offer the Our Whole Lives (OWL) program every other year to 7th-9th graders. The OWL program is sometimes referred to as “sex ed,” but really it’s more than that. OWL is a sexuality education program that models and teaches caring, compassion, respect, and justice.
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.
