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.”
Hello RE families,
Thanks to everyone for their help and support with this past Sunday’s RE intergenerational service. It was so nice to celebrate with AJ, Logan, Hayden & Wesley. Thanks again to all of our volunteers for their dedicated service this year.
Weekly Classes and Upcoming Events
- Summer Sundays
This Sunday kicks off Summer Sundays! Summers at UUFEC allow our children to learn about new topics and get to know more of the adults in our fellowship. FRED BOYER will be having a lesson this week on MAPS.
- Summer UUFEC Camp July 5th – 8th
July 5-8 UUFEC will be hosting a summer camp for grades 1-5. The four day camp will include fun, adventure and friendship with a healthy dose of our UU principles. Priority registration for grades 1-5 is open for members/friends beginning NOW through JUNE 8. After that, our program will be advertised to the local community.
Volunteer opportunities will also be posted in the coming week
Hope to see you there!
- Fall Volunteers
In the coming weeks, I will be reaching out and asking for fall RE volunteers. Volunteering is a once monthly commitment for our preschool/elementary classes. It is a joy working with our children and a wonderful way to make a positive difference within our UUFEC community. Curriculum, supplies, and any needed training will be provided by me before fall classes begin. Our teens are also in need of more advisors. With our teens (which meets 2nd hour) we ask for a larger commitment of 2 or more weeks per month. This allows for trust and positive mentor relationships to develop. If you are interested in signing up or would like more information, please let me know at email@example.com.
- UUFEC Summer Camp Snack Time Volunteers Needed
We are looking for snack volunteers to bring in snack one day during camp July 5-8. This is a great way to support our new summer camp. We will provide an approved food list with many delicious and healthy options for you to choose from. Sign up at the link below or contact Lisa Farley, DRE
