Rainbow Principles: Stay In Touch, Stay Informed

 My primary means of communicating about our children’s programming (like Sunday school, events for families, youth group, and Our Whole Lives classes) is through the UUFRC Parents Yahoo group. If you are not a member, please join! Send me an email, and I will send you an invitation. Or, better yet, go to groups.yahoo.com, search for UUFRC parents, click on the link, and click on “join group”. This is a relatively low-volume email group: postings are limited to UUFRC programming and things that may be of interest to children or their parents.

I’ve seen the new website, and it’s exciting. Under “News” there is a families page, where you should be able to find the latest information.

The calendar on the new website has multiple event categories to help you sift through the large number of events there. For example, selecting “Youth and Families” in the drop-down menu will only show events related to children and youth, such as (in April)

MUUGs (middle school) events;
YoUUth (high school) events;
classes for graduating seniors; and
the Youth and Families (YAF) Committee meeting.

I encourage you to check out the new website. See you in church—Derby
