Children’s Sunday School
We offer faith development programs for children ages 4 through 17 at our Children’s Sunday School, which meets from 9:30-10:15 am approximately three times per month from September through May. Once per month, all children are invited to sing in our Children’s Choir (check calendar for class dates.) Newcomers are welcome to register and join at any time throughout the year. Our 2017-18 classes are:
Four- to Six-Year-Olds: Our preschoolers are using the “Chalice Children” curriculum to help them learn our core values and major symbols through play and structured activities.
Six- to Nine-Year-Olds: This age group is using “Faithful Journeys,” a curriculum that introduces Unitarians and Universalists throughout the centuries and explores how they lived our principles in their lives, as well as exploring what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist today.
Nine- to 12-year-olds: This group is using “Travel in Time,” a curriculum that allows students to explore their own ideas, beliefs, and commitments, alongside those of other Unitarians, Universalists, and U.U.s across history.
Thirteen- to 17-year-olds: We are excited to offer a new opportunity for our teenagers this year. “YUU in the World” explores relevant and important spiritual themes based upon the expressed interests of the students in the class. This year our youth have chosen the “Be the Change,” a youth multiculturalism and anti-racism project, as their framework. Time spent together will be used to explore personal and Unitarian Universalist spirituality, to discuss social themes within the context of the Unitarian Universalist principles, and in building connection to the church and broader community through relationships and service. (This is in addition to, not in place of, our Coming of Age and Youth Group programs.)
