2018-2019 Children’s Faith Development

We offer faith development programs for children ages 4 through 17 at our Children’s Sunday School, which meets from 11:30-12:30 am approximately three times per month from September through May. The first Sunday of each month, October through June, 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.

Four- to eight-year-olds This year’s curriculum will be Picture Book Principles, focusing on one of the Seven Principles each month, with developmentally appropriate activities for small groups following a shared story experience.

Nine- to eleven-year-olds Toolbox of Faith invites participants to reflect on the qualities of our Unitarian Universalist faith, such as integrity, courage, and love, as tools they can use in living their lives and building their own faith. Each of the sessions uses a tool as a metaphor for an important quality of our faith.

Twelve- to fifteen-year-olds will be using the Building Bridges curriculum to learn more about Unitarian Universalism as they learn about other faith communities in Concord from September through January. Our Whole Lives will be offered January-May.

Fifteen- to seventeen-year-olds: We encourage our older youth who have completed Coming of Age and Neighboring Faiths to participate in any of the faith development opportunities for adults on Second and Third Sundays from 11:30-12:30. (This is in addition to, not in place of, our Coming of Age and Youth Group programs.)
