Sunday Morning Routine: Nursery Care
Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers from 9:30a to 12:45p. Caring, experienced childcare is provided by our amazing staff, Karmen Bryan-Auker and Suzy Koehler. Parents and guardians are asked to supply labeled bottles and diapers for their child.
Preschool to 5th Graders:
Children and youth begin each Sunday upstairs in the Chapel at 9:45a. Classes end at 11:00a. Workshop Rotation is different for K-5th graders each week, alternating between Arts & Crafts with Rachel Moen, Theater & Dance with Matt Davis, and "Wild Card"--where a congregant shares a gift, talent, or interest related to our monthly Whole SoUUl Living ministerial themes. Past "Wild Cards" have included: Calligraphy, Yoga, Mandala making, Music, Journaling, Storytelling, Rocket Science, Fossil Fun, etc.
In the spirit of growing our appreciation of other religious traditions, our middle school group will be utilizing the Neighboring Faiths Curriculum. This program invites the youth to actively encounter the traditions of other religious practitioners and to embrace a multi-religious reality, while viewing the whole through a Unitarian Universalist lens and upholding our commitment to religious freedom and a continued, devoted search for truth and meaning.
This amazing class includes guest speakers, site visits to other churches, and meaningful interfaith dialogue and exploration
Youth begin in the Sanctuary at 9:45a. Sr High class begins at 10:15a and goes until 11:15a. The original "SoUUl Surfing" Sr High curriculum is done in partnership with youth and advisers, focusing on our monthly themes explored through dialogue, activities, and spiritual practices.
Urban Peak, our Sr High montly service project feeding homeless youth, is the 4th Sunday of every month. Please contact our Youth Coordinator, Toini Morgan, at email@example.com for more information.
High schoolers may sign up to participate in various church committees and to be involved in worship, if desired. Please see Eric Bliss, DRE, for further information about these amazing opportunities. There are also prospects for our youth to join the larger Unitarian Universalist community and form lasting friendships with like-minded individuals by participating in district conferences and interchurch events. You can find out more about these offerings by going to the Mountain Desert District's website.
