BERRIEN UU CHILDREN’S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAMS FOR 2017-2018
Grades K-5 – Moral Tales
Every day our children go forth into a complex world where they are often faced with difficult decisions and situations. Moral Tales attempts to provide children with the spiritual and ethical tools they will need to make choices and take actions reflective of their Unitarian Universalist beliefs and values.
Grades 6-12 – Peace and Social Justice
Older middle and high school age students can participate in peace and social justice programs by learning through participation and action on issues involving poverty, re-certifying BUUF’s Welcoming Congregation status, and taking the necessary steps for BUUF to be certified as a Green Sanctuary. These students will have opportunities to prepare and serve lunch at the Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen (ages 12 +), plan and participate with teens and members of the OutCenter, and learn about and practice environmental justice. Students meet at BUUF on Sundays during our services and outside of BUUF when necessary. They will be expected to attend Sunday services when appropriate for their activities. Our high school students are self-directed and have BUUF’s support should they choose to plan other appropriate activities. Our DRE Dave Sarra will lead our high school students.
