Our Whole Lives (OWL) Orientation
Parents of youth in Grades 7-9 next year are invited to an orientation for Our Whole Lives (OWL) Outreach, the life-affirming, comprehensive sexuality education program. This is an exploratory orientation, with no obligation to register for the program, to determine interest in the offering, and the orientation will be immediately following the second service.
Summer Sunday Program
The Summer Sunday Program builds community among children and youth through a series of fun and adventurous all-ages activities and service projects, including camp-outs, stream walks, mountain hikes, scrap book projects, edible plant walks, bicycle clinics, visits to local farms, and a service project to prepare school supplies for needy children.
The Summer Sunday Program will run June 19 - September 4. The Summer Sunday activities begin at 10:30 am and are intended for children ages four and up. Extended Nursery is available 10:30 am - 11:30 am for children up to three years of age.
Religious Education - Introduction and Registration
Welcome to the 2010-11 Religious Education Program!
Our SCUU Religious Education staff is devoted to guiding our children in a free and independent search for truth and meaning by engaging them in creative exercise in faith development.
We accomplish this goal through the use of a spiritually and intellectually stimulating educational program. Carefully selected curricula explore such topics as comparative religions, Native American spirituality, conflict resolution, social justice, peace building, community, creation myths, environmental awareness, and of course the principles and values of Unitarian Universalism.
We seek to create a safe, secure and welcoming environment for our children and youth by staffing all classrooms/events with two adults (a teacher and an assistant), each committed to nurturing our children's natural inclination toward curiosity and wonder.
SCUU is a growing and dynamic spiritual community. This year, the Religious Education Program offers four instructional classes: Explorers (preK - 1), Mavericks (grades 2 - 4), Seekers (grades 5 - 7) and Our Whole Lives (OWL), a comprehensive human sexuality class for grades 7-9, in addition to the Youth Group and Nursery.
If you are looking for a spiritual home for your children, consider SCUU where we celebrate love, experience transcendent mystery and explore the interconnected web of life.
We don't have an online process for registering (yet), but watch for the forms to available soon!
The recommended donation is $50 per child per year, with a $150 per family maximum.
Come by any Sunday and speak with us during the fellowship after service. We'll be happy to speak with you and answer your questions. You may sign up then if you like.
Contact us online via contact form or meet us on your next Sunday Services at Sugarloaf visit!

Religious Education Mission Statement
We the members and friends of SCUU welcome children and encourage their participation in our congregation. We covenant to support them in their spiritual journeys by offering information, joyful experiences, life examples, and thoughtful discussion of the seven UU principles. We encourage questioning of all common assumptions, learning about the earth and its many environments, and appreciation of the great diversity of peoples who live in our world. We are committed to providing a caring, compassionate and supportive congregational environment in which to nurture children along lifelong paths of spiritual growth. We recognize that a most critical resource in this regard is a dedicated and well-organized volunteer corps of teachers, mentors and advisors who are carefully invited into this important work, and who are inspired to welcome children into our Unitarian Universalist faith.
