Children’s Worship                                                    
Children in elementary attend the first 15 minutes of the Sanctuary worship service with their families before attending their Religious Education class.  Throughout the year, there are also a variety of special worship opportunities for children, youth, and adults of all ages.

Elementary

Elementary children spend the year using age-appropriate curriculum and resources to explore Unitarian Universalist identity, liberal religious values, and a variety of faith traditions, broken down by semester. Classes are taught by volunteer teachers and are designed to provide children with opportunities to explore the UU faith, strengthen their own spiritual life, and enhance their sense of religious community.

Beginning September 11, elementary classes will meet during the 9:30 and 11:00 worship services. A wide variety of Unitarian Universalist curricula and resources are used in elementary classes. During 2016-17, we anticipate offering the following elementary classes:

9:30  Kindergarten & 1st Grade
9:30  2nd - 6th Grade

11:00  1st - 3rd Grade
11:00  4th - 6th Grade
