Schedule – World Religions (grade 3 – 5)

This program will be divided into three sections, Fall, Spring, and Summer. Each month a different religion will be studied including Unitarian Universalism, Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and more. Dates through January 2020 are listed below. The later months will be listed as scheduled over Fall 2019. Unless otherwise noted classes are at First Unitarian Church of Victoria and will run 10.30 – 11.45 am.

Chaperones and drivers may be needed for the offsite visits to various faith communities. If you are willing to be a driver/chaperone for these visits please email Arran. Participants are expected to commit to the program and will not be able to attend the visits unless they have attended the classes relating to that religion or with permission from the Director of Spiritual Exploration and Learning.
