Children's Choir Practice
Children ages 5-18 are welcome to join our Children's Choir.

People often think the purpose of a children's choir is to perform during worship from time to time. Performance (celebration) is the frosting on the cake. The real heart of a children's choir is in the community building and skill development that occurs. Choral singing builds self-confidence, memory skills, social development, and emotional expression. Music is fun, first! It is about enjoying the experience of singing.

Children's choir meets approximately twice a month in the Sanctuary and is directed by Kallin Johnson.

Regular Religious Ed Class
Children begin in the Sanctuary with their families then leave with their teachers for class.

Beginner Class -> Sess. #2 of LOVE WILL GUIDE US introduces the children to the first Source of Unitarian Universalism: The sense of wonder we all share. The children will discover the awe and wonder of nature and experience themselves as part of nature. They will hear a story "We Got Here Together" and will replicate a soothing sound from nature by creating rain sticks. If it is a nice day, we'll go outside and collect items from nature.
Teacher: Susan Berkowitz

Primary Class -> The power of earth is the power of roots. In Sess. #2 of Sing to the Power, The children consider the ways their roots and heritage ground them and shape who they are. Activities may include: Making a living space memory plan, poem writing, and/or a Roots Geography game played outside.
Teacher: Joan Ogden

Youth Group -> WKSP #2: Unitarian Universalism: The Journey Starts At Home. Building Bridges clarifies and strengthens participants' faith while increasing their understanding of others'. This class is a "review" of what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. "Different People, Different Beliefs, One Faith". We share ethical and moral values, and a commitment to try to live them in our families, communities, and world. "Deeds not creeds", This life matters, Principles, Sources, Our sacred texts: Bible, Qur'an, Bhagavad Gita, Dhammapada, Tao Te Ching. This is a jam-packed class that our youth will not want to miss. It is important that they have a good understanding of their own faith before exploring others.
Teacher: Pearley Mears

Nursery -> TBD
