Rainbow Connections - Infants through Young Preschool
During the school year, we offer the Rainbow Connections program during both the 9:30 AM and 11:15 AM services. This program introduces infants, toddlers, and young preschoolers to the seven principles of Unitarian Universalism through sensory exploration, mantra, song, and story. During the 9:30 AM service, children up to the age of six are invited to participate. During the 11:15 AM service, children up to the age of four are invited to participate in the program.
Soul Matterings - Elementary Ages (Pre-k through Fourth Grade)
During the 11:15 AM service, our Pre-K through Fourth Grade students begin in the service and leave after the story for all ages to explore our monthly church themes through whole group stories and movement activities. They also build community through independent and small group enrichment opportunities.
JRYRUU-Middle School (Fifth through Eighth Grade)
During the 11:15 AM service, our fifth grade through eighth grade students begin in the service and leave after the story for all ages to explore Unitarian Universalist history and begin to identify practices from the UU tradition and variety of other sources that might inform the development of their own individual values and principles. Our JRYRUU volunteer educators cultivate a fun environment for learning with engaging activities, videos, discussions, and occasional field trips throughout the year. This program is perfect for the middle school student who is interested in learning about faith from a general and personal perspective. It sets the stage for a deeper study of multiple religions, traditions, and personal faith practices.
SRYRUU-High School (Ninth through Twelfth Grade)
Our SR YRUU students are taking time during the 2017-2018 school year to explore social justice elements, actions and practices through the Tapestry of Faith Social Justice Curriculum. They begin in their classroom at 11:00 AM.
This program uses literary works to create opportunities for in depth discussion around societal oppression and the work that is needed to combat the marginalization of persons in our society. In addition to weekly discussion opportunities, activities that stimulate community involvement and enrichment are provided monthly. Throughout the year, our senior high youth have the opportunity to engage with other youth at UUA sponsored Youth Con events.
