This week, our preschool, preK-1st grade and 2nd-6th grade classes read stories that celebrate all kinds of families and people of all genders. PreK-6th grade kids color rainbows with caring, affirming messages to be shared at the UU booth at Twin Cities Pride next weekend.
What are Summer Sundays?
On Summer Sundays we have a single worship service at 10am, and childcare and Religious Education classes are offered from 10-11am for children ages 6 months up through those entering 6th grade in the Fall. Adult staff and trained youth from the congregation provide care and guidance as we enjoy a more relaxed pace and focus on building community with one another. Kids close in age are grouped together as follows: Nursery (6-17 months); Preschool (18 months to 3 years); Young Children (4 years through entering 1st grade); and Elementary-Age (entering 2nd-6th grade).
Our youngest visitors spend the morning in bright, happy spaces with plenty to explore, in the care of paid adult and youth staff, playing and making friends of all ages. Young children in preschool through 1st grade begin their morning with a circle, songs, and picture books, then have time for crafts, games, and play inspired by each week's story. Elementary-age kids come together for a brief time of worship, welcoming one another into the circle and learning about the day's theme. Then they dive into hands on projects, crafts and games. If weather permits, you'll definitely find some of us out on the playground!
No need to register kids for Summer Sundays in advance -- please join us!
