Please note: Programming for children is only provided during the second service on Sundays. Families who attend the 9:15 a.m. service are welcome to utilize the Children’s Table in the Friendship Hall. Families with small children are also welcome to utilize the nursery, which is staffed by childcare professionals and located in the Religious Education Wing, if they so choose. The Chapel, in the back of the Friendship Hall and Sanctuary and where services are live streamed, is also available.
To maintain best safety practices, we ask that all parents/guardians be sure to find the check-in station in the foyer to sign their child(ren) into Sunday morning programming.
On Sunday mornings, children and youth start out with their families in the Sanctuary, all together. After a chalice lighting, singing together, and a Time for All Ages story. Children are sung out to their religious programs with the hymn, “Go Now in Peace.”
At UUCS, we firmly believe in the benefits of a multigenerational community. We model this on Sundays by inviting children and youth into religious exploration with children of other ages.
- Children’s Chapel, held in the Thoreau Room is for children between the ages of 4 and 12. Using the format of a Sunday service to support kids in their religious and spiritual exploration, children gather together in song, get to know one another through sharing, and engage in an activity relevant to the topic of the morning’s sermon. We conclude with snacks during Fellowship Time.
Parents of elementary kids must come to get them when the church service is over.
We would also like to note that while religious education is provided for children each Sunday, all of our children are more than welcome to stay in the Sanctuary and attend the Sunday Service, if that is more comfortable for them. In fact, we encourage this for youth in grades 7 and up!
