We welcome families and children to join us for our weekly Sunday services. We will be joined this year by a new Youth Coordinator, Jamie Maloof, who will lead our Youth Program on the first and third Sundays of each month starting in November and running through June. These activities are largely for children ages 4 and older. For the younger set, we offer complimentary childcare in our playroom.

Caregivers are welcome to drop their younger children off in the playroom prior to the start of service; older children attend the start of service and then together walk down. 

The 7 Principles for Children

Unitarian Universalists have many ways of articulating our seven Principles in simpler language. Here’s the way our Tapestry of Faith children’s programs describe them:

  • We believe that each and every person is important.
  • We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly.
  • We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together.
  • We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life.
  • We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them.
  • We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world.
  • We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things.
