Programs for Children and Youth

IMG_20150618_162432 (640x211)At WBUUC, our primary goal is to create a safe and loving space in which our children, youth and adults can grow and serve together in beloved community, and discover who they are called to be in the world.

IMG_2413We often begin our time in religious education classes focused on building a covenant; a set of agreements of how we ought to be with one another. We hope that this provides a gentle framework in which our youngest UUs can put our Principles into practice, no matter what the topic of the day might be.

Meeting Times

Sundays
Mid September through Early June
9:00am and 11:00am on Sunday mornings

Religious Education Classes (RE)
Most Sundays, we offer RE classes for children Preschool through highschool.
We encourage children age three through 6th grade to join the congregation for the start of the service. After our opening words, a song, and the chalice lighting, the children are invited to attend class. Youth in grades 7 through 12 start classes on the hour.

Special Sundays

Social Action & Grow Your Soul Sundays
On these special Sundays, our children Kindergarten through 6th grade work on a community service project in conjunction with a local agency, or we gather to explore spiritual practice and how we might intergrate these rituals into our every day lives at home. On these Sundays, Preschoolers meet in the classrooms while K-6th meet in the social hall.

Intergenerational Worship
Opportunities to be together in worship and celebration is an important part of our curriculum here at WBUUC. We invite families on these special days to be together in beloved community; wiggles and all!

Wednesday Programming
Beginning with dinner for the whole family from 5:30pm-6:30pm, we have programs for all ages throughout the program year. While adults enjoy a weekly forum, we welcome babies and toddlers into our nursery, school-aged children into our Homework Soulwork and Chalice Lighter training programs, and youth 7th grade and up to get involved in the many opportunities to grow and serve in community.
