    Nursery Room

    Our infants and toddlers are lovingly cared for in the nursery room by our dedicated CPR and First Aid certified RE Aides and volunteers from the congregation. Parents are welcome to stay in the nursery if they would like. Parents must sign their children in and out of the Nursery room, and keep their phones on vibrate when they leave.

    3 - 4 year-olds (Pre-K): Chalice Children

    Chalice Children delves into Unitarian Universalist faith and provides experiences around the strength of community, the wonder and awe that transcend everyday understanding, and life issues we all share. Early childhood is filled with curiosity and wonder.

    World of Wonder (fall)

    This program delves deep into our Unitarian Universalist seventh Principle. It instills respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part, and appreciation of nature's beauty, excitement, and mystery.

    Wonderful Welcome (spring)

    The Wonderful Welcome curriculum engages and challenges participants to explore how and why we are willing to welcome others into our lives. We welcome not only strangers, but family, our peers, our neighbors, and even entities that are not people such as our animal friends and nature itself. Come join us in opening our hearts up for radical welcome. 

  • 3rd Grade - 5th Grade: Harry and UU

    3rd Grade - 5th Grade: Harry and UU

    This program is based on the Harry Potter series of books by J.K. Rowling, books that immerse children in the idea that one can work to make the world better.

    The curriculum includes many fun wizarding activities, including herbology, potions, runes, and divination. Over the course of the year, the class forms a chapter of Dumbledore’s Army and fights against seven Horcruxes. The Horcruxes are real-world social issues, and the goal is to produce tangible results through social action.

  • The Sunshine Kids (age 4-grade 2) and Chalice Singers (grades 3-6) rehearse between the two services on selected Sunday mornings.

  • OWL is a comprehensive, lifespan sexuality education curricula for use in both secular settings and faith communities. It provides honest, accurate information about sexuality. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, and improves decision-making. Our Whole Lives helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their health and behavior. It equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture.

  • This ten-workshop program is designed to help children ages nine through twelve to gain the knowledge, life principles, and skills they need to understand and express their sexuality in holistic, life-enhancing ways.

    Like the other Our Whole Lives programs for different age groups, this comprehensive, developmentally appropriate program introduces key topics like values, body image, gender and sexual identity, peer pressure, and healthy relationships with sensitivity and inclusiveness, yet without specifically religious doctrine or reference.
