2. From your Associate Minister of Religious Education

Summer is a great time to bring children and youth to UUCPA. Summer Sundays are a chance to relax and spend time getting to know other people at UUCPA before the busy school year starts up again. Children entering grades K-5 can go to Summer Sunday School, for relaxed and fun summer-camp-like activities. Older kids are also welcome in Summer Sunday School, or they may want to attend services with their parents.

Plus there are a number of fun events you can do as a family during the summer. The big all-church pool-party and barbeque on July 21 is great for families. Families can help serve lunch at Stevenson House, the federally subsidized elder housing complex next door to UUCPA (you park in the UUCPA lot, and walk over the bridge to get to Stevenson House). And watch the order of service for announcements about summer barbeques for CYRE families.

I’ll be out of town from June 23 through July 21, visiting family in New England, and doing an intensive week-long course in religious education. Then I’ll be back in my office beginning July 22, getting ready to start up regular Sunday school again. We’ll have our ingathering service, the annual Water Communion, on Sunday, August 18 (that’s a month earlier than last year). And regular Sunday school will start up again on August 25.

Summer is a great time to relax. So come relax and spend some peaceful, fun summer Sundays at UUCPA!

3. Annual evaluation session with kids

Kids from gr. K-8 are invited to come to Sunday school during the 9:30 service for the annual evaluation session. This is a great chance for kids to express what they found most memorable and fun about UUCPA in the past year. We’ll be following the same process as last year, which you can read about here.

4. New CYRE brochure now on Web

The new brochure for Children and Youth Religious Education at UUCPA, describing the programs for the 2013-2014 congregational year, is now up on the Web! You can view it here.
