December was amazing at for Religious Education at Piedmont UU Church. Our students and teachers put together a wonderful pageant celebrating the birth of Jesus that was performed for both the University Gathering and Salisbury Gathering. In addition to performing in our pageant our students also helped to create our set pieces, costumes and star decorations for the sanctuary. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in the pageant as an actor or actress or working behind the scenes to make everything run smoothly. Heidi Hagi, Connie Byrne, Susie Benner, Stephanie Nelson and Jason Gray put in an outstanding effort to make our pageant a success by leading our children in craft making, doing a little craft making of their own and transporting a mountain of stuff all over North Carolina. Thanks for making this all possible!
In the month of January we have two major events coming up for our Religious Education classes. Our classes start back on January 5th after our Holiday break with all of our classes meeting as normal in the month of January except for January 19th when there will be a children’s chapel for the students during the service. Rev. Justin will lead the children’s chapel, and all classes are invited!
On Sunday, January 12th after the first and second service there will be a Religious Education Feedback session in the classrooms adjacent to the sanctuary. Everyone in the community - teachers, students, family members, people who just want to talk about kid stuff - is welcome to come to come discuss what they have enjoyed and what they think can be improved about our Religious Education Program at Piedmont UU Church. Come make your voice heard! I’ll throw in some snacks if that will seal the deal.
See you on Sunday!
