Our Children Learn:

  • To respect themselves and others.
  • To love in their ever growing circles of the human community.
  • To search for truth in the presence of other seekers to seek liberty, peace and justice in our world.
  • To engage their mind and body, heart and soul in creating a meaningful life journey.
  • To understand and appreciate what it means to be Unitarian Universalist.
  • To love and respect the earth and all the plants and animals.
  • To reflect on questions of creation, God, birth and death, holy days, Bible stories and stories from other sacred texts.
  • To converse about the wisdom of other world religions.
  • To celebrate and enjoy life.

Our Director of Child & Youth Faith Development Director David Traupman, parents, and congregation volunteers provide a warm and nurturing environment for spiritual exploration and growth with a variety of thought-provoking, creative, and fun activities based on the UUA’s Tapestry of Faith: Toolbox of Faith curriculum.

While we physically distance from each other, the following opportunities to learn and grow are available via Zoom and at outdoor on-campus activities:

Sunday Funday Check-In

9:30 to 10:00 a.m. Every Sunday via password-protected Zoom link

These weekly conversational and interactive sessions give our kids and families a chance to share how their week has been, answer relationship-building questions, center around readings and stories, acknowledge and honor spiritual holidays/celebrations, and takeaways to help them live their UU principles throughout the coming week.

Sunday Worship: Time for All Ages
