Happy summer, everyone! I hope you are enjoying the long days and some extra time to relax. I am excited to work with you to build the Middle School Youth program (“MiSC Youth”) this year. I have found wisdom in discussions in UUA classes about how ultimately “the Church is the Curriculum.” I believe that Religious Exploration takes place for each of us in classes, but also through our shared experiences in community with others who live our UU beliefs.
This year, I hope our youth will enjoy religious exploration in many ways: connecting, learning, and doing in Sunday morning meet-ups; working for social justice with our Gr.6-10 youth; contributing to services in recognition of the congregation’s need and appreciation for youth talent and time; and building UU family at home.
Thank you for supporting our middle school youth program! Keep an eye out in August for more information, volunteer needs, and registration. In the meanwhile, please feel free to contact me with any questions or information you’d like to share, or even just to say hi!
Looking forward with gratitude,
Tanya Webster, DRE Youth
