DRE RE-flections: Why Teach in RE?

We want YOU to Teach RE in 2020-2021

  • Do you believe our values are needed more than ever these days?
  • Do you care about the well-being of our children and youth?
  • Do you have a little capacity?
  • Are you able to use the internet with some ease?

If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, we need your partnership!

Even if you’ve never taught Religious Education before. Even if you think you don’t know how. Even if your children left the house years ago, or you don’t have kids. We need you. Knowing who we have to work with will help us make decisions about programming for the coming year.

Given the circumstances of Covid-19, our focus will be support and connection. We will likely meet virtually for the first part of the church year, and we may not work in the same age groups as in previous years. But with your help we’ll build an RE program that the congregation is able to support.  More than anything the goal will be to reinforce the message that our UU beliefs and values matter, that this community is a place to share feelings and questions, to offer support and to ask for help.

Please take a moment to fill out this short survey and let us know how you can help support our RE gatherings for children and youth beginning in September. For more information contact our DRE, Beryl Aschenberg at beryldre@follen.org or any member of the RE Action Team.
