A fresh approach to Religious Exploration for these extraordinary times.
In these times of isolation, stress and uncertainty, meaningful connection can recenter and re-engergize us. QUUilt, UUCF’s new take on RE, aims to emphasize Connection over Content by engaging children, families and adults in religious community through fun and fellowship.
QUUilt goes beyond a traditional framework of Religious Education for children by embracing lifelong learning at UUCF and supporting parents, children, youth, adult learners, teachers and volunteers in a connected community.
Sunday morning classes and high school and middle school group activities will continue (virtually), of course. But these “patches” of content are now joined with other new opportunities for connection.
Information on opportunities for connection are shown below and will be shared in the weekly QUUilt Community UUpdate, along with links to register children for online RE classes and to sign up for activities. If you’ve been receiving weekly RE UUpdates, you are all set. If not, sign up here. For questions about QUUilt, contact Director of Religious Exploration Diana Tycer. For middle or high school programs, please contact Courtney Firth.
Come wrap yourself in the warmth of community. Get involved in QUUilt!
