Faith Development 9.21 to 9.27.20

Family Faith Development – (Children & Youth) 

September 27th is the final session in our elementary curriculum, Love Surrounds Us. On October 11 we will begin a 12-session unit called, “Building Anti-Racist UUs.” It is written for two age groups, K-2 and 3rd-5th, so who would like to help out teaching! We have almost enough people that we can do this with you only being present once a month. Please reach out to me if you are willing to help out in the RE Zoom classes this year.

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. If you attended RE, the site includes optional activities for home related to the session. You can post pictures of your family doing the activities directly to the Padlet site, or share in one of our FB groups.

New to Live Oak? If you are interested in visiting a class, and are not registered for RE, please send me an email at

Attending and not already registered? A link for RE registration is in the right sidebar. After you register, you are added to an RE email list for your child’s age group. Registered families receive regular emails from me with zoom links and other information. Watch the welcome video on our faith development overview page for an explanation of how we gather each week. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult to help with technical issues.

Acorn Groups
