JUNE RE NEWS

 

June is upon us, and with it the closing of another RE year. This year I am filled with a mixture of emotions-- pride in our children and youth as I have watched them learn and grow in faith and as leaders this past year; gratitude for the dedication, time, and creativity that our teachers, youth advisors, and so many supporters have given RE; and sadness as our time together will soon be coming to a close. I will remain as RE Director of the UU Congregation of Rockland until July 31st in order to ensure a smooth transition, preparing curriculum plans and teaching staff for the fall, and organizing materials and other administrative tasks for your new director.  I will be present on most Sundays through the end of July.

 

June is full of joy! On June 9th we celebrate RE Sunday. Our Coming of Age youth will share their Credos (personal statements of belief), as we recognize their faith development journeys to become leaders in Unitarian Universalism this past year. We will also celebrate the completion of the Timeless Themes and Simpsons classes, and the learning and growth of all our RE children. June 16th is our Annual Intergenerational Flower Communion and will include recognition of our leaders and teachers and our graduating high school seniors. Rev. Dawn and I will lead these All-Ages services together, in celebration with our whole community.

 

We will also have teacher and assistant sign-up sheets for our new classes available on the back table in the worship room throughout June. Our fall RE classes will be announced on RE Sunday. Please add your name to continue to support and strengthen our religious education program, as we grow in learning and spirit together!
