Welcome to UUFEC Religious Exploration
- Welcome Lisa Farley, UUFEC Director of Religious Exploration
Lisa Farley, M.Ed. has returned to UUFEC to once again serve as the Director of Religious Exploration. Lisa lived in Niceville FL from 2004-2008 and during that time was a classroom RE teacher and DRE. Four moves, two states, and one country later, she and her family are excited to return and put down roots in Niceville and this wonderful UUFEC community.
As a parent and educator, Lisa has an understanding of the unique challenges that face our children today. She strives to help parents create a balance and allow children a joyful place to be creative, ask questions, and explore their passions. Lisa looks forward to helping the fellowship continue to build a strong and vibrant program for our children and youth. As one of our common RE chalice lightings states, may all our children be “of the open mind, the loving heart, and the helping hands.”
UUFEC RE registration is open and is now ONLINE! All children/youth birth through grade 12 must be registered to participate in nursery and RE programs. This is our first attempt at going electronic – all feedback is appreciated. Here is the link to register:
