What We Are Learning
Nursery (birth – Kindergarten)
Our nursery is open each Sunday for both first and second hour programs. During summer our nursery age is expanded so kindergartners can play in nursery when other children are in service.
School Age Children (1-5) – Gather the Spirit
During first hour, UUFEC has many child-friendly services planned for Summer 2019. During these services, children are welcome to sit in the front with other children or with their parents.
Intermittently, we will also be offering workshops on stewardship titled, Gather the Spirit that teach lessons with a focus on water. Perhaps, today, there is no more compelling focus for our stewardship than the clean, drinkable water all life on Earth requires. Through a lens both scientific and religious, using activities a wide range of ages can do together, this program addresses the importance of water, the inequity of access to clean water, and actions we can take as Unitarian Universalist stewards. We will explore:
- Can water sources be owned?
- Why is clean water scarce in parts of the world?
- If clean water is abundant where I live, what difference does it make if I conserve it?
- What can I do to promote global water equity?
Water stewardship has become a summer tradition at UUFEC.
During second hour, child care will be provided (most weeks) for elementary age children so parents can enjoy second hour offerings. If members are available to volunteer one Sunday this summer we will be able to expand the number of weeks available. Please contact Lisa Farley, DRE at email@example.com if you are able to spend one Sunday session with our children.
Youth Group – Chalice Peeps
This summer our youth group will be continuing the redesign of the Stage Room. Come ready to get messy! Our project includes lots of painting, even more conversation, and loads of fun.
Lunch Bunch (1st and 3rd Sundays) – 12:15-1:15
“Lunch Bunch” will be offered for first and third hour committee meetings. Please pack you child a nut-free lunch. From 12:15-1:15, children will have an opportunity to eat lunch together and have extended play time with our childcare staff.
