This year's curriculum for children in grades K to 4 is adapted from the book "What Do You Stand For? A Guide to Building Character" by Barbara A. Lewis. Even elementary school-aged children can build positive character traits like caring, citizenship, cooperation, courage, fairness, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The true stories, inspiring quotations, thought-provoking dilemmas, and activities in this book help kids grow into capable, moral teens and adults.
Junior Youth Group
The curriculum for this year, “Building Bridges,” is a world religions program to deepen youth's understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search. The Junior Youth Group also meets for social nights once a month, typically on Friday evenings.
Senior Youth Group
Youth in grades 9-12, led by Ministerial Intern Sarah Meister, meet monthly in the Loft on Sunday mornings while adults are worshipping in the Sanctuary. They are using the Unitarian Universalist-developed curriculum “Be the Change,” focusing on race and social justice, engaging in “Team Building with Teens," including fun activities to build community. The Senior Youth Group also meets for social nights once a month, typically on Friday evenings.
