Key Programs Offered: 

Children's RE First Parish offers a parent-run Religious Education program for children and childcare for infants and toddlers. On most Sundays, the minister or service leader will invite the children to come forward for the Children’s Focus early in the service, after which the kids go upstairs for their program. If you come with children, you are welcome to have them either try out our RE program or stay with you during the service. If you wish, you may also accompany them upstairs. This year, we will be learning about how other cultures and religions celebrate life, their beliefs, famous people, occurrences in nature, and times of year. Using a UU curriculum known as “Holidays and Holy Days” we will learn about important days as well as significant parts of the traditions and culture they come from. Through crafts, ceremonies, games and discussion, our religious education program will help our children learn more about the world and people around us and the many ways people are religious. The more holidays we learn about, the more we can understand. Some holidays will be more familiar, while others will open us to other spiritual and cultural practices. Adult RE Programs for adults have included: Building Your Own Theology Meditation and other spiritual practices Historic Jesus
