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 a variety of age-appropriate UU curriculum and resources to explore Unitarian Universalist identity, spirituality, and spiritual practices, liberal religious values, and social justice topics. Classes are taught by volunteer teachers and staff and designed to provide children with opportunities to explore Unitarian Universalism, develop their own UU identity, explore liberal religious values, strengthen their own spiritual journeys, and enhance their sense of religious community.

 

During the church program year (September-May), elementary classes will meet during the 9:30 and 11:00 worship services most Sundays. A variety of Unitarian Universalist curricula and resources are used in elementary classes.

 

During the fall of 2019, our primary exploration in elementary classes will be Environmental Justice and Racial Justice.
