Faith Development for Families

This week in online RE classes:

  • 9:15 – 9:45 AM PreK Class will have a lesson on Easter
  • 11:30 – 12:15 AM Elementary and Middle School classes meet. This Sunday our elementary classes will view a Pixar short, Tin Toy. We are using a curriculum called CartUUns that consists of short Pixar and Disney animated shorts to spark conversations on UU values. Middle School continues their new lessons based on The Simpsons, using the cartoon to spark conversation on religious and ethical topics.

Links to our classes are emailed to families who are registered in the program. New to Live Oak? If you are interested in visiting a class, and are not registered for RE, please send me an email at You can register by clicking HERE.

Can’t make the scheduled RE time? No worries. As we say, families are the primary religious educators. All lesson plans are available to registered families via Live Oak Padlet. (Registration link in sidebar.) Lesson plans on the site include optional activities for home related to each session.

Don’t forget to visit the Parent Resource page on our website for ways to support your family.

Adult Faith Formation

Our Wellspring Sources circle continues to meet, and two Chalice Circles continue to explore the worship theme twice a month. There is also an asynchronous anti-racism book group that will finish our current read at the end of March. I will offer a second group starting in mid-April, so watch for the sign-up for that.

Have an idea for a one time or ongoing online gathering that you are willing to lead? If you do, let us know and we’ll help with scheduling and publicity. And be sure to follow us on Facebook and subscribe to the newsletter for opportunities for online engagement.
