Religious Education Open House


Have you ever wanted to invite a friend to the Society, but never found the right time? Do you have a coworker or neighbor who you think is really a Unitarian Universalist at heart? Do your kids’ friends wonder why they have to promptly leave Saturday night sleepovers to make RE on Sunday morning? Invite them to our RE Open House on October 2! Everyone will start in Anderson for a Time for All Ages, then visiting children will join their age-appropriate RE Class, while visiting parents will meet with Johanna to learn about our religious education program and have all their RE-related questions answered. Rev. Tony will be available to meet with visitors after the service to offer a broader perspective on congregational life at USR. Please contact Johanna at usr.dre1@gmail.com or 207-409-6192 for more info.
