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, a variety of faith traditions, and the church’s monthly themes. Classes are primarily taught by volunteer teachers and designed to provide children with opportunities to explore Unitarian Universalist values and identity, strengthen their own spiritual life, 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 wide variety of Unitarian Universalist curricula and resources are used in elementary classes.

 

 

CamilleDuring 2017-18, we anticipate offering the following elementary classes:

 

9:30     Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade

9:30      3rd-6th Grade

 

 

11:00      Kindergarten & 1st Grade

                (also includes 4-year olds)

11:00     2nd, 3rd, & 4th Grade

11:00    5th & 6th Grade
