This Week in Children's Ministry, Jan. 25th, 2015

Sunday, January 25th, 2015


Childcare is provided for children from birth through age 24 months at our 9:30 service and up through age 4 at our 11:30 service.


2 and 3 y/o: Celebrating Me and My World: Our 2 and 3 year olds are invited to join in for a day of play and friendship making in our nursery. There will be no separate class for this week.

preK-1st grade: Love Surrounds Us: Our lesson is the Love Surrounds Us Sharing. This week we will hear a story about the Beattitudes. We will also build our rainbow wrist ribbons.

2-4th grade: Spirit of Adventure: This class begins with activities and games and concludes with our Chalice Council. This week we begin our unit on Medicine. We will learn about a Unitarian named Dr. Albert Schweitzer who received the Nobel Peace Prize for his ideas on caring for all life.

5-6th grade: Love Connects Us: This week our lesson is “Our Heritage of Love.” We will use a story about Judith Sargent Murray, discussion and activities to explore how we commit to one another in community and set a plan for how we will learn together in the coming months.

Rainbow Adventurers: Children in Kindergarten through 6th grade are invited to join us for our weekly adventures. 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 creation. This week we are learning about the Red Principle: Respect All Beings.

A Reminder: Unless otherwise noted, children four years old and up begin their Sunday morning in the Worship Service with their family. We consider the time we spend together in worship before classes begin as an integral part of our Sunday morning experience. Children three and younger may be left in childcare before you enter the Meeting House and need to be picked up immediately after the service.

South Bay Campus:

Sunday, January 25th
Families who attend the service at 9:30 at our South Bay Campus have the opportunity to worship together in a mutigenerational. Our story this week is the story of the Children’s Crusade. Assistant Minister, Jennifer Channin will preach her sermon titled, “Ordinary Prophets.”
