Guest Teacher: Helen Schwartz
Guest At Your Table Boxes
Women Leaders, Strong Communities

Guest at Your Table has been an important part of UUSC and congregational culture for 40 years. Each year, involvement in Guest at Your Table grows — strengthening UU connections to our shared principles and helping to challenge injustice throughout the world.   
UU congregations and individuals in the United States and around the world participate in this important annual tradition. We come together, learn about people directly connected to human rights work, reflect on our own lives, and raise funds to advance justice in communities near and far.

Religious Exploration Program

We see the purpose of religious exploration as helping children explore their own answers to the existential questions: Where did we come from? What are we doing here?  How do we choose to live our lives?  What happens when we die? Children are free to work at their own pace on their own issues after an initial lesson or story within a safe and sacred structure. Our focus is on the Unitarian Universalist 7 Principles and the UU sources.

Sept. 8 Multi-Generational Service Childcare Available

CRE Community Service project

2019-2020 CRE will be sponsoring the Bremerton Backpack Food Brigade for kids who need food on weekends beyond school meals. There is a box in the foyer for donations.

In the CRE Room is Children’s Altar—Children are encouraged to bring something to place on the altar (stone, poem, drawing, shell, etc.)

Children’s Tote Bags with goodies for keeping little hands busy during the service are now available.  Bags include coloring pages and fidget toys. Please put back in basket at end of service.

Here are the songs that will be incorporated into the services and when these songs are sung—children are invited to come up and sing. Mike has created a Dropbox for these files.  Please feel free to grab them if you wish.  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/y0lcqgxd2154lc8/AAB7v0TVwydrfKI_VxY8GNTBa?dl=0
