Children joining in the beginning of the service

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,
  • experience spiritual practices from a variety of faiths,
  • discover wonders in the natural world around us,
  • and engage in social action. 

Sunday Morning Programs

Upcoming programs

Sunday May 12thMother’s Peace Day

In 1872 Julia Ward Howe launched Mother’s Day as a day women would gather in churches, social halls, and homes to listen to sermons or essays, sing, and pray for peace. Let us return to the original meaning of Mother’s Day where mothers, sons and daughters reflect on how to bring peace into our families, communities and the world.

Sunday May 19th8th UU principle: Building a diverse multicultural community

Newly adopted, the 8th principle has us journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions. We will share steps we can each take on this journey.

Sunday May 26th7th UU principle: Respect for the interdependent web of existence

The 7th principle in Unitarian Universalism says we respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. It is more than just an environmental idea, it helps us to see beyond individualism. Join us as we practice doing things collectively and connected to others around us.

Sunday June 2nd6th UU principle: Work towards peace, liberty, and justice for all

The 6th principle in Unitarian Universalism says we affirm and promote a goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all. As we our month’s theme of Pride we explore what justice means within the LBTGQ+ community.

Sunday June 9th – July 28th: Playful Activities of Summer

Staff and volunteers will be available with activities based on the children who attend that day.

Regular programming will return in August.

Cornucopia – Harvest Celebration

On some days we may be discovering the meaning and spiritual message behind a seasonal Holiday from the various traditions we share. On another day we may be learning how to be anti-racist.  Throughout the year we share from the 8 principles of the Unitarian Universalist tradition and draw on 5 resources: direct experience of wonder, prophetic people of justice and compassion, wisdom from world religions, science & nature, and earth based traditions.

Mostly our programs for children are opportunities for them to experience living and learning to be leaders in a caring covenantal community. 

If you have a child in grades kindergarten to 6th, come join us on Sunday mornings from 10:30 to 11:45 to see the community we are building. There are also family events throughout the year which you can find on our Family page. For more information and ways to engage, please reach out to:
