Year round, in everything we do, the focus of religious exploration is to create a safe space for asking life’s big questions, to build supportive relationships with others, and to practice living our shared values every day.
Janise Rennie, our Director of Religious Education, would love to hear from you at dre.uuslo@gmail.com.

Important Information:

Visitors

Guests are very welcome in our RE classes. If you are visiting our Fellowship for the first time, come a few minutes early so you can check out the Religious Education area before the service. You can meet our staff  and explore the space in which your child will be our guest. Our staff is dedicated to making their experience with us both enjoyable and challenging. You are welcome to stay with your child during our class time.

Registration

In order to provide a Religious Education program which meets the needs of the children and is safe, we ask that every child be registered. Forms are available here on the website  and in RE. The Registration Form  can be downloaded as a PDF or Word document.. This slip does NOT give permission for field trips or outings to specific locations. Parental / guardian permission will be sought separately for those events.

 Safety

Children can only learn and grow if their environment is safe and nurturing. Safety is our first priority. Please share any information about special needs with the Religious Educator, or our Minister.

Here is a piece about a volunteers commitment:

Volunteer Commitment and Opportunities in Religious Education

Volunteer Commitment

The RE program at UUSLO are successful due to the commitment of parents and volunteers. Typically, a rotation of 1 or 2 Sundays a month will fulfill our volunteer needs. Teaching is not for everyone however there’s many opportunities to volunteer, see list below.
