Children & Youth Schedule
School-year (September 16 through May 12) Children and Youth Schedule
The 10:00 AM hour is our pre-service hour.
The 11:00 AM hour is the cornerstone of our program.
Children join their families for the start of our Sunday worship service. We sing together and share a story, then children proceed to class with their teachers as guides.
Each month we take part in:
Two to three Sundays of grade-level Unitarian Universalist curriculum.
Sunday School classes, led by our wonderful volunteer teachers, are learning communities in which we light a chalice, share our stories, and take part in games, crafts, and experiments.
Children’s Chapel – a monthly chapel time to encounter awe and wonder and discover our own agency to change the world (Room 108)
Special Events – UNICEF Carnival (October), Souper Bowl of Caring (February), Gardening Days, as well as multigenerational worship services.
Curricula Offered 2018-2019:
Preschool/Kindergarten: Chalice Children (Room 105)
Children experience our caring space, explore new and familiar ideas, and enjoy one another’s company with Chalice Children, a UUA-published curriculum. Ages three and up
First to Fourth Grade: Exploring UU (Room 107)
Our elementary class considers our Unitarian Universalist principles and sources while building joyful community.
Fifth to Eight Grade: Compass Points (Room 209)
Our Middle School will develop community and consider their deepest values and life journey with Compass Points.
Eighth Grade: Coming of Age 10 AM (Room 207)
Over the course of a year, youth gather for dynamic workshops, retreats, and justice projects. With mentors and guides, participants explore what they find meaningful and how to build a spiritual “toolkit” to help them face the joys, sorrows, wonders, and challenges of being human. The program culminates with a Sunday service where each youth shares their credo, a statement of their beliefs and values.
High School (Room 208)
Our high school youth work with their adult advisers to plan their calendar, incorporating UU curricula, video and current event discussion, as well as games and opportunities to bond and restore spirits amidst hectic teenage lives.
