Celebrating Through Worship

Developing a deep connection to one’s faith community starts young; even when we think our children aren’t paying attention at all, they are learning our songs, finding comfort in our rituals and observing what it means to live our UU faith.

The learning that happens in the classrooms on Sunday mornings is just one way that our children grow UU identity, and this Sunday, we are introducing another way for our children youth (and adults!) to experience our community.

Chapel Sundays | Oct. 1, Nov. 5, Dec. 3, Jan. 7, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, May 6

Rituals and practices learned at church can become centering practices at home. 

The first Sunday of each month, children in Prek-5th grade will hear a story before leaving the sanctuary for child-centered worship, and then return after the sermon for the closing hymn and prayer. This allows children to experience worship and community, and to engage the lesson for the day in an age-appropriate way.

Occasionally, Chapel will be led with help from the junior high and senior high youth, with help from younger children who wish to get involved in presenting worship
