Summer Children's Religious Education classes run June 7th-August 30th
9:30 am Classes
An Eric Carle summer. (preK-1st grade)
Kids will journey through life cycles with the tiny seed and the hungry caterpillar, discover how bugs can be helpful with the grouchy lady bug and grow with a whole cast of colorful characters. Based on the popular books by author Eric Carle, this curriculum connects story, art, and action in a summer long exploration of our seventh principle.
Gardens and Games! (2-6th grade)
In these fun and dynamic classes, kids 2-6th grade take the lead in completing hands-on projects as they create an edible children’s garden. We will use games and gardening to connect our UU principles to the food we eat, the water we use, and how we care for the Earth. Through building garden beds and worm composting bins to planting and tending seeds and plants kids will gain skills they can take home and confidence that their everyday actions can make a big difference in our world.
Rainbow Adventurers (K-6th grade)
Together we will share in a chapel service including story and song that focuses on one of our Unitarian Universalist Principles. Children will then choose from a number of exploration stations where they can explore the principle through play and create. One of our main projects will be working in our garden.
Infants through Age 4
Our youngest children will receive tender and loving care in our Nursery, provided by paid, professional caregivers. For safety reasons we ask that these children be signed in and out of class..
9:30 Program South Bay
On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, children ages 5-13 will start the morning in the worship service, and after the story will go to class in Suite 101. They will share joys & concerns and discuss the story from worship and how it connects to our UU Principles. On the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month, we will be continuing our multigenerational worship services.
