Sunday Morning Programs
TOur Sunday Morning YRE programming is available for children ages 4 and up. We also offer complimentary childcare for children under age 4.
Preschool – Story Time with Toddlers.
Kindergarten – First Grade and Grades 2 – 3 – Spirit Play I & II
Spirit Play uses the Montessori approach for the structure of Sunday Morning. In Montessori, the key elements are the prepared classroom and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own issues after an initial lesson or story within a safe and sacred structure shepherded by two adults.
Grades 4 – 6 – Spirit of AdventureSpirit of Adventure provides exciting activities in areas of engineering, exploration, medicine, sports, holidays, food and nature. Active play such as a “take apart party,” obstacle course, and a treasure hunt are just some of the fun to be had during this year of discovery, while children also foster a deeper sense of Unitarian Universalist identity.
Middle School (Grades 6 – 8) – Pop Culture Theology
Grade 8 – Coming of Age
The Coming of Age program allows Eighth grade students to connect with our adult members through a mentorship program. The kids work together to create their own worship service while developing their personal beliefs. The Coming of Age service is typically held in May.
High School (Grades 9 – 12)
Grade 12 – Bridging
Bridging is an important step toward becoming an adult in the Unitarian Universalist tradition. High school seniors work together and with adult mentors to develop leadership skills. At the end of the school year, the students lead a worship service that includes a Bridging ceremony, where they “cross over” from youth to adult membership.
