We’ve just completed our Summer Sunday School – new info will be up in May 2018.

UU Superheroes

Here at Emerson, our children will spend Summer Sundays learning from UU Heroes – our faith ancestors who have taken a stand, come to a new understanding, and brought justice to their world.

Each session includes a biographical story and a way to investigate the theme, from games to crafts to experiments.

All ages attend the full worship service on July 2nd.

Who are our UU Superheroes?

We could learn from thousands of Unitarians and Universalists (as well as our current Unitarian Universalists)–here are a handful!  As our Justice League assembles, we’ll put session dates in bold below.
