Christine Bulman is our Interim Director of Religious Education. She co-leads worship, develops curriculum, plans, trains and supports volunteers, and supervises the RE Staff Team. She is available on Sunday morning to listen, answer questions, and support the volunteers who make the religious education program happen.
Kate Oldshue, our Youth Ministry Coordinator, coordinates all aspects of the Senior Youth Group and Junior Youth Fellowship Group.
Our teachers are caring volunteers: some have many years of experience in this ministry of religious education, others are relative newcomers just embarking on this journey. Most teachers commit to 6-12 Sundays of religious education over the course of the year – as part of a rotating team of 7-10 volunteers. This year-long teaching commitment provides adequate continuity for the children and fosters communication among team members and with families. Participants in this ministry of religious education are also able to balance this experience with participation in adult worship throughout the year.
Religious Education Committee
The RE Committee is responsible for maintaining the RE program. This dedicated group of volunteers meets monthly to ensure happy, productive experiences for our children youth, teachers, and parents. The RE Committee works in cooperation with our Interim Director of Religious Education (DRE), Youth Coordinator, and the Minister.
Information regarding the Religious Education program can be found in the monthly newsletter. Families whose children are enrolled in the religious education receive email updates as necessary for details related to specific activities.
We use curricula developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association and other UU religious professionals. The major themes are depicted above. Please feel free to bring questions, comments, or concerns to the DRE, any member of the RE Committee, or classroom teachers.
