with classes for children three years old, tweens, teens and adults
Welcome to our 2013/2014 church year! Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship offers programming for our youngest members all the way to our eldest members recognizing that personal and spiritual growth is something that we cultivate over a lifetime.
We are a loving, diverse, open fellowship that inspires spiritual growth, encourages ethical actions, seeks truth and has a deep commitment to improving the community and the world by our actions.
Philosophy of Religious Education
Unitarian Universalists find inspiration from six sources. The stories and lessons we offer in religious education are drawn from these foundations of our faith:
- The sense of wonder we all share.
- Women and men from long ago and today — people whose lives remind us to be kind and fair.
- The ethical and spiritual wisdom of the world's religious.
- Christian and Jewish teachings which tell us to love all others as we love ourselves.
- The use of reason and the discoveries of science.
- The harmony of nature and the sacred circle of life.
Children and Youth Religious Education Programming
We are proud to announce our class offerings for this year. Classes begin on September 8th and registration forms are available for print and online (http://www.dentonuuf.org/joomla/index.php/religious-education.html).
Adult Religious Education Programming
Faith development never ends. New experiences and insights add to our world view and shape our beliefs. This year we have expanded our programming for adults to include programming for people of diverse backgrounds, interests and beliefs. There is something for everyone in our programming this year—we hope you will participate!
Maximizing Your Experience
In order to get the most out of our programming we recommend that you come regularly and get to know new people as you are here. Volunteer to lead or assist in our programming, attend church social events, and participate broadly in the life of the congregation. Subscribe to DUUF News, our e-newsletter that is sent by e-mail weekly (there is a sign-up box on our website at www.dentonuuf.org). Parents, introduce yourself to your child’s teachers; ask questions and engage your children in their learning and discovery. Get to know our staff. Most importantly, put down roots in your religious community. Get to know others of all ages and backgrounds. Share with us your interests and concerns, as well as your talents. Let us know special milestones, celebrations and/or struggles that your family is experiencing.
We look forward to a wonderful, enriching year together.
