During the year, Children and Youth Ministries sponsors a number of special events. Some are holiday gatherings, some have a service component, and most include intergenerational socializing or projects. Here is a listing of special events for this church year:

UNICEF Pumpkin Decorating Contest - October 27, 2013 (after services).  This will be an all RE activity during class time.  Children will be given small pumpkins to decorate. The pumpkins are then set up with UNICEF boxes by them for social hour and after each service everyone gets to “vote” for their favorites with coins for UNICEF. 

Holiday Craft Fair and Pot Luck Sunday, December 22, 2013. 12:30 – 1:45pm.  One service only at 11am…stay for lunch and to make crafts!  RE Volunteers provide materials and instructions for a number of art and craft projects to make holiday gifts and decorations.  A small fee is collected to cover the costs of materials.

Special Friends Ice Cream Social - Sunday, February 6, 2014. A longstanding First Unitarian Church Tradition!  This is a Valentine opportunity for everyone in the congregation to make new friends with our children and youth over an ice cream sundae.

Passover Seder - Wednesday, April 16, 2014 6:00-8:00pm..  An intergenerational dinner and ceremony using a UU Haggadah developed by Rev. Roy Weissbard.

Spring Family Retreat - May 2 - 4, 2014 at Jumonville.  A weekend for the whole family.  Highlights include workshops for adults, children’s activities, worship, games, nature walks and lots of time to be together.

All Church Picnic - June 8, 2014.  Bring a potluck dish and celebrate the end of the church year.
