We offer a multi-age learning environment for children enrolled in Kindergarten and up. Our 2018-2019 program is entitle Spirit of Adventure – UU Identity. This is a vibrant, hands-on program that incorporates physical movement, learning from challenge and adventure. The program embraces topics such as Sports, Medicine, Food, Holidays, Science, Building, Exploring and the Web of Life.
Our Youth Group meets on the First and Third Sunday evening each month and is offered for children in grades 7+.
Our program has been developed in order to provide various learning opportunities for our children to learn and grow in their faith.
We currently offer:
Multi-Age Sunday morning programming – Spirit of Adventure: UU Identity Children’s Faith Development programs will be available each Sunday morning during service. Through the year, our time together will include exploring curriculum programs, service projects, maintaining our Certified Wildlife Habitat, attending MultiGenerational Services together, special Children’s Chapel services, Family Ministry Programs, Kindness Projects and more.
Children’s Chapel This is a special multi-age offering which is a child centered version of a worship service. This allows our younger congregants to feel empowered to participate in a service and gain a better understanding of the elements of a service.
Multi-Generational Services We offer special services throughout the year that are specially designed to speak to audiences of all ages. These will include our Pet Blessing, a musical celebration in honor of Pete Seeger and our end-of-year CFD Celebration Service.
Family Ministry Programs We offer special programs on months with a fifth Sunday following service. These programs are designed with families in mind, but are open to all. They are an opportunity for all generations to be together in fellowship. We will explore our UU Principles and more through discussion, hands-on activities, social action projects, story and song and more.
