Religious Education Council


Chair: Deb Grad


The RE Council (REC) is responsible for the philosophy, content and implementation of the religious education program in a manner consistent with our Unitarian Universalist Principles, Sources and the Covenant of First Parish UU Church.

The Religious Education Council works with the Director of Religious Education (DRE) to coordinate and implement the children's RE program. The Council consists of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and at least two at large members. The present members of the council are Deb Grad (chair), Michelle Hillman, Karen Dussourd, Patience Merullo, Elizabeth Valentine and Gail Burati.

Each member is a liaison to one of the following Religious Education teams (AKA subcommittees):

  • Curriculum Writing Team and Workshop leaders
  • Religious Education Sunday and Pageant Team
  • Milestones Team
  • Pre K and Kindergarten Teachers Team
  • 1st through 5th Classroom Guides
  • Religious Education Youth Team (REY)
  • Religious Education Special Events Subcommittee (RESES)


RE Volunteering

As a cooperative religious education program, we were made possible by approximately 100 volunteers last year.

Even though we have a 32 hour per week Director of Religious Education and we now have 15 hour per week Religious Education Administrative Assistant, we still depend on the work and support of volunteers of all kinds to help keep our programs going.

If you have not filled out the Volunteering Survey online please take some time to help us gather the skills and availability of our church community. This will help us offer a program that uses the resources of our community wisely and builds a strong Religious Education program for Unitarian Universalists of all ages.
