News from Children & Youth RE, June 2020

Kids jumping

You aren’t seeing us now, but we’ve been busy organizing and arranging a number of activities for our children and youth. Even though we are staying at home along with all of you, we are busy on Zoom with fun and games to help while away the hours.

Our Children and Youth Religious Exploration Committee has been calling all the families in our congregation to check in and make sure that all of people we care about are feeling well and loved. Please do check in with us, any time. We’d love to hear from you: call Director of Religious Education Cleo Anderson and leave a message for her at 310-829-5436 ext. 105.

Here is a sampling of the events we have going on…and the best part is that you’re all invited!

Pre-School Check In—Tuesdays 11:00 am to noon.
Meet us on Zoom for a chalice lighting, story, and discussion of our favorite parts of being at home.

Middle School Logic Puzzles—Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.
Join us on Zoom to try to solve some logic puzzles as a team.

Elementary Check In—Thursdays 11:00 am to noon.
Join us on Zoom for a chalice lighting, check-in, and a few fun videos and quizzes.

Coming of Age
Demonstrating their impressive command of the 5th Unitarian Universalist Principle, the use of the democratic process, this year’s class has elected to mostly halt our formal Zoom gatherings until it’s safe for us to return to in-person meet-ups. In the meanwhile, Coming of Age participants are moving forward with their church community service project, which can be done while safer-at-home orders are in place. We’re also connecting via Zoom about once a month to check in and connect socially. We hope to complete the program with our full cohort and schedule a Coming of Age service in the fall.

New Ideas…
Watch your emails for announcements on new art and dance class offerings. Let us know the best times to offer these classes. We’ve got some experts lined up to bring the arts right to you. Fun for all ages and all families.

Our attendance varies from week to week, and we know our children have school work to do alongside their time to play. If you have any ideas of something you’d like to do/see/attend, please let us know. Email Teri at or Cleo at We’re open to fresh ideas and want to involve and connect with as many of you as we can. We do miss seeing you!
