As part of our congregation’s commitment to lifespan RE at UUCCSM, we’re trying out an exciting new way of coming together as one church community: monthly ministry themes. These topics will provide an axis around which many elements of church life gain more meaning and depth, though the church’s offerings each month will by no means be limited to the themes. We’ll engage the themes through sermons, music, newsletter articles, RE classes, special events, and much more. We’ll offer at least one Adult RE program that relates to each month’s theme. And we’ll celebrate the themes through newsletter articles, stories, at-home resources for families, music, special events and more. Also, be sure to check out our lists of monthly ministry theme-based quotes, prepared by church member Bettye Barclay.
