We light this chalice for our children and youth, and for us:

celebrating the flame of faith lit in each of us,

honoring the light each of us bring into the world,

rejoicing in the community we create together.

Children’s Activities (Kindergarten-7th Grade, Fall 2021)

Beginning December 5, multi-age Religious Education activities for children in kindergarten-7th grade will be held most Sundays during the 9:00 am worship service. Activities will be a mixture of indoor and outdoors activities pending the weather and selected activities. Gatherings will be led by Christie Lee and Heather Flick with support from Eliot volunteers.


Here’s sampling of some of the planned activities in the upcoming month (subject to change):

  • Activities from the UU Soul Matters Sharing Circle. The December theme is “Opening to Joy.” This is also the worship theme in December. Look for additional Soul Matters sessions in January and beyond as we seek to align the RE and worship themes whenever possible.
  • An opportunity to explore and share about our favorite holiday traditions, and participate in the making of “Reindeer Food”, a beloved tradition for Eliot children for many years.
  • Periodic guest speakers from the congregation to share about various Eliot ministries and share their talents and interests with Eliot children.
  • Exploring UU values and building community through short Pixar and Disney films, using the CartUUns material.
  • A SINGING opportunity in mid-December.  We’ll be learning a song composed by a Unitarian on the theme of “sharing joy with others.”
