Faith Development for Families

This week in online RE classes:

  • 9:15 – 9:45 AM PreK Class will have a lesson on Stars
  • 11:30 – 12:15 AM Elementary and Middle School classes meet. This Sunday our elementary classes will view a Pixar short, Mater and the Ghostlight. 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. This week’s episode is “Bart Sells His Soul.”

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.
