We find the elementary school years an exciting time for exploring. Our Sunday morning programs offer enriching sessions that explore questions, practice UU values and traditions, explore spiritual practices from a variety of faiths, and engage in social action.  Our Childhood Coordinator Luka Coole and volunteers provide in-person Sunday morning programming for elementary age kids.  After a brief time in with their families in the Sunday service, kids leave for a short children’s chapel followed by activities that follow the theme of the day.

Cornucopia – Harvest Celebration

On some days you may find us discovering  meaning behind a seasonal  Holiday from one of  a variety of traditions and cultures. On another day we may be learning how to be anti-racist.  This year we will share more from our background of being Universalists, and give more attention to Jewish and Buddhist teachings. Mostly this is an opportunity for our children in 1st to 6th grades to experience living and leading in a loving covenantal community. 


If you have a child in grades 1 to 6, come join us on Sunday mornings from 10:30 to 11:45 to see the community we are building. For more information and ways to engage, please reach out to:
