THIS WEEK IN RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION!


Last week we caught the buzz about World Bee Day in the RE classroom, while guest speaker Elizabeth Cunningham was talking about life as prayer in the meeting room; I was told that Elizabeth has a very special relationship with the bees, so it was a sweet synchronization of energies between the spaces where adults and children gathered.


This Sunday, May 26, Reed is hosting a games gathering for kids and their families in the lounge! Weather permitting, outdoor time may also be on the agenda. 

Please RSVP if you plan to attend, so that we can plan accordingly. 


ALSO - Reed needs an additional adult to volunteer to join in the space this Sunday the 26th in accordance with our Safe Congregation policy. Please help if you are able! Let me know about your RSVP as well as if you can be the second adult at mcfavell@uupok.org before the weekend. 


Be on the lookout for our Pride Festival preparations in RE! Poughkeepsie Pride Festival is going to be on Saturday, June 8.   Check out all of the information on the Dutchess Pride website


UUFP is going to be in the parade as well as hosting a tent and table at the festival! Won't you join us? We welcome you and your family to walk and/or volunteer at the tent!


RSVPs are always welcome. You can email me at mcfavell@uupok.org if you would like to RSVP, or if you have questions. 


We look forward to seeing you!

With kind regards, Marnie
