Religious Exploration (RE) Calendar 2017-18 (subject to change)

2017-2018 REC Activities and Calendar

The Religious Exploration Committee (REC) has re-elected Dan Dickinson as Chairperson.  Thank you, Dan, for your continued leadership and service to this congregation and the children! Our meetings will continue to be held on the first Sunday of the month at 9:00 am in Room 3.

Bonfires will be hosted on UU Miami’s beautiful campus! These evenings will include dinner (beef and veggie hot dog options), water and s’mores along with time to hang out together playing ball, music (bring your instruments), singing, etc.  If you would like to volunteer to chaperone one of these events please contact Barbara at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Parent’s Night Off will give our children a chance to bond outside of regular Sunday RE classes and give our parents an occasional night off!  These evenings will be held several times throughout the year and will consist of a chaperoned pizza & approved movie/game night.  Two nursery care teachers will provide supervision for children so young children are also welcomed.  If you would like to volunteer to chaperone one of the events or to suggest a film please contact Barbara at This email address is being protected from spambots.

All Ages Schoolhouse is an opportunity for all RE classes to come together to learn a new skill from an expert.  Some examples may be how to write a play, how get a new law written, how to tie special knots, an art lesson, etc.  If you would like to volunteer to teach one of these classes please contact Barbara at This email address is being protected from spambots.
