Children & Youth
In keeping with our commitment to an intergenerational approach, congregants of all ages participate in the early part of each worship service. Third Sundays often feature a Time for All Ages, which includes an improvisational story-telling moment for all to enjoy.
Younger Children adjourn to their classrooms before the sermon most Sundays. Activities are inspired by the day’s theme and help children explore their beliefs and values. Classes often relate to an issue of social justice, and to building skills of empathy and generosity.
Teens and Tweens remain in the sanctuary and are invited to join the post-service discussion every Sunday. It’s a great opportunity for cross-generational conversation.
Nursery Care is provided for infants and toddlers but parents may keep their child with them during the worship service. Activity bags are available on coat pegs near the entrance. If your child becomes restless you’re welcome to listen to the service in the Lounge.
All Children and Youth learn age-appropriate applications of our Eight Principles, and the Sources of Our Living Tradition, including the religions of the world. There is no fee for children to participate. Families of participants contribute financially through annual pledging, and volunteer in our programs.
At all times, we seek to hold our children in love, ignite their passion for justice, and offer them the chance to dive deep into the beauty of our Unitarian Universalist faith. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment and hold to high standards of accountability.
