Birth to Age 4 Nursery Rainbow Children
Our trained nursery staff create a welcoming, inviting place for children in PreK and below. In the nursery, children are introduced to our values of love and kindness through modeled behavior, sharing, and fun activities.
Grades K-1 Wonderful Welcome
In this program, children identify intangible gifts central to Unitarian Universalism such as friendship, hospitality and fairness, and share these gifts with others.
Grades 2-3 Signs of our Faith: Being UU Every Day
Signs of Our Faith presents fourteen traits or values that most Unitarian Universalist love, including the quest for knowledge, reverence for life, supporting one another on our faith journeys, and public witness. Children examine how their lives do and can exhibit these traits and values, and come to understand that their faith is a living faith.
Grades 4 Toolbox of Faith
This program invites participants to reflect on 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.
Grades 5-6 Bibleodoen
This curriculum introduces biblical scriptures by presenting the best-known Hebrew and Christian stories with fun and interactive games, such as investigating the Cain and Abel crime scene and solving the “Mystery of the Day.” The children explore connections between biblical events and UU principles, between biblical ideas and their own lives.
Grades 7-8 Amazing Grace
This program guides our students through ways to determine right from wrong with a Unitarian Universalist perspective, and act on their new understandings.
Grades 9 -12 Senior Youth Group
Youth group meets Sunday mornings, 10:30 AM – 12 noon in Waters House. Our youth group is open to the youth of our congregation and their friends. Our advisors work in collaboration with the youth; all working toward empowering the group to be youth-led and directed. Youth group focuses on five components: social action/justice, worship, activities and fellowship, learning, and leadership opportunity. Committed youth group members may also participate in regional and continental events, including Youth Conferences (Cons) and the Youth Caucus at General Assembly. Cons are held throughout the year at various UU congregations throughout the region. These weekend youth retreats offer opportunities for friendship and spiritual reflection in addition to workshops, worship, dances, shared meals and communal living.
