UU Identity, History, and Theology
Nursery (Infants through age 3)
Engaging childcare is provided each Sunday (and for all congregational events upon request) in our Nursery, from 10AM through 12 noon.
Love Surrounds Us (Pre-K-1st Grade and/or ages 3.5-6)
This curriculum focuses on the core of our Unitarian Universalist community: our seven Principles. The Principles encompass all the ingredients of a good and faith-filled life based on equality, freedom, peace, acceptance, truth, care, and love. This program explores all the Principles in the context of Beloved Community of family/home, school, and neighborhood. Participants engage in activities that emphasize the love they feel in community.
Love Will Guide Us (Grades 2-5 and/or ages 7-10)
In this program, participants learn to seek guidance in life through the lens of our Unitarian Universalist Sources, with an emphasis on love. Together we ask questions such as, "Where did we come from?" "What is our relationship to the Earth and other creatures?" "How can we respond with love, even in bad situations?" "What happens when you die?" Participants will learn that asking questions is valued in Unitarian Universalism, even as they begin to shape their own answers.
Riddle and Mystery (Fall) and Heading the Call (Spring) (Grades 6-8 and/or ages 11-13)
In this program, middle schoolers will split the year between the curriculum Riddle and Mystery and Heeding the Call: Qualities of a Justice Maker. In Riddle and Mystery, students will introduce and process a big question such as: Where do we come from? Where are we going? How can I know what to believe? What does Unitarian Universalism mean to me? In Heeding the Call, true stories of courage, sacrifice and collaboration, role-plays, games, and a program-long justice project will feed youth’s rising realization that as people of faith we are all called to love justice—not just with our words, but also with our deeds.
Youth Group (Grades 8-12 and/or ages 14-18)
The youth group meet weekly from noon-1pm where they discuss relevant issues, plans social activities, organizes social actions, attends district rallies, and worships together. During Sunday morning class time, high school youth are welcome to attend the worship service with the larger congregation or to assist with the younger classes.
