Will you ‘Keep the Promise’ to our children and youth?

Please consider making a commitment to the children and youth at Central Unitarian Church this coming year. When you volunteer you are “Keeping the Promise” to welcome, care for, teach, and bless our children and youth as they begin their life-long religious journeys.
 
About 30 Church Members have already signed up to be a part of our cooperative Sunday School, Our Whole Lives (OWL), and Youth Group programs beginning in September. Others have agreed to serve on the Children and Youth Religious Education Committee or to help with special events and projects. We thank you all!
 
If you’ve not yet signed up to volunteeer, please e-mail Liz Timperman, Chair, Children and Youth Religious Education Committee, at lizbt259@gmail.com or David Horst, Minister, at revhorst@cucparamus.org and let us know how you’d like to help.
 
We urge every teacher, substitute teacher, and youth advisor (and anyone even thinking about volunteering!) in the Sunday School, OWL, and Youth Group programs to attend the Teacher and Advisor Training Workshop on Saturday, September 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Assembly Room. If you’re a returning teacher or advisor, come share your experience and knowledge; if you’re a new teacher or advisor, come learn the basics of teaching and advising our children and youth. Lunch and beverages are provided.
 
Our new Director of Religious Education, Dylan Debelis, leads the training along with members of the Children and Youth Religious Education Committee and the Minister. Dylan joins our staff on August 22.
 
Earlier this year the Children and Youth Religious Education Committee adopted this mission statement: “The Religious Education Committee’s mission is to create a Religious Education Program that fosters Unitarian Universalist identity through teaching our principles, practices and history, building congregational relationships, and serving the greater community.” This mission speaks to all of us — leaders, volunteers, and ministry staff — who are committed to helping our children and youth grow in faith and religious understanding.
