UUFN Celebrates Families!
Sundays at 10:30am
During the summer UUFN’s Religious Education Program for Children takes a less formal approach. Kids always look forward to these fun summer activities. But this year we are reaching out to local families with a special series of family-centered services and events exploring peace and connection.
We will begin on August 19th with a service for all ages called A Spirit of Play. We invite you to bring your most lighthearted spirit to this worship service of playful adventure in stories, songs, and reflection. Play invites others to join in fun-filled connection. There will be a welcoming picnic following the service! This is going to be a very special day at UUFN! Bring a friend or two!
On August 26th the young people should bring their curiosity as the “Summer Sundays of Fun” program will enjoy a Take Apart Party! We’ll supply the hammers! The children will be taking apart printers, computers, and other discarded electronics to see just how they work! Perhaps they will find ways to upcycle them into new creations?
While the kids are enjoying the smashing and investigating stuff, the grown-ups are welcome to join a service. Are you too busy for a spiritual life? We will reflect on the inherent push and pull of our active life with our inner spiritual world and ways to balance both. The UUFN is a community of spiritual seekers inspired to promote a just and compassionate world. Yet, at critical times in our lives, we’re so busy we hardly know whether we’re coming or going.
Beginning on September 9th The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark is offering an 8-week peace curriculum for elementary students K-6th grade. There will be a three-fold focus, exploring peace within yourself, peace with family and friends, and peace in the community. Handling difficult emotions, ways of self-calming, problem-solving, and community service will be discussed. Children will participate in a variety of peacebuilding crafts and activities such as making a personal peace pole, contributing to a paper peace quilt, walking the labyrinth and meditation.

These classes are open to the public.
All are welcome.
