We believe that children develop their moral and ethical values by reflecting sensitively upon the wide range of experiences which make up their daily lives and by being challenged to learn more about the lives of others.
Our program for children and youth is held concurrently with the service for adults.
The service starts with parents and youth (six-year-olds and up) together in the sanctuary for chalice lighting and welcoming words, after which, the youth go to their own class. Once each month, our youth participate in a Story for All Ages in the sanctuary with Reverend Tom. Younger children, birth through five, start in their classroom.
Our youngest children are provided an environment in which they are nurtured and encouraged to be aware of themselves and others, and to care about the world in which they live.
Children and youth from six through high school are engaged in a variety of age-appropriate, UU-approved curricula and other fun activities to help them think about and live the UU Principles. Activities include use of books, discussions, art, music, and more active projects, such as our on-site organic garden and social justice projects.
